final stages of oil finish?

Any tips on "polishing" a hiland rubbed oil finish on a stock?

I've been refinishing my flintlock stock....

Stripped it...lightly sanded it...raised the grain..lightly sanded...

3 coats of minwax stain

Now I'm using minwax sheen rubbing oil...my truoil was stuck shut...I've never tried the rubbing oil but I think I love it...not sure what it is exactly but they of course quit making it...the grain is almost completely full now..

I've read a lot of different stuff on final polishing...

Figured y'all might have also me tips...?

I gotta put it back together for 1 last hunt tomorrow...then will finish refinishing it...hate to do it...I didn't plan to go all out on it...but ended up that way..and I'm happy with the results...its looking great...it polished to a nice finish with just a dry cloth...it should really pop nice after final finishing...another 2-3 coats and final polishing and it'll be done...

Thanx!

Re: final stages of oil finish?

I love making smoke with flint n steel....I can't explain it...black powder is more addicting than meth.....its too late for me I reckon..I've already inhaled! I love releasing an arrow too...but I love all the seasons...after a long bow season sitting in trees I enjoy a change of pace...I am not picky on what I kill em with...

I don't have high hopes for filling the buck tag tomorrow...haven't seen a buck in a few weeks now...not sure if they dropped antlers here or I just can't find them..between me and my buddy Monday we seen 26 deer..not an antler to be seen...I had high hopes and thought I'd be able to find one by now...anything can happen!
