fnick Posted February 3, 2015 Share #1 Posted February 3, 2015 Evening all In despair I turn to the collective wealth of knowledge of MSW! Although I dont need an answer for probably quite a while at the rate I am going, here's a question for you more knowledgeable people than me: I would like to have a low sheen finish for my model but would like something that can take wood glue. Does such a finish exist? Originally I was wanting (and may still do) to use Danish oil because I love the low sheen finish it has and the warmth and depth it gives the wood. However one major drawback is that wood glue doesnt work on surfaces treated with danish oil and ideally I would like to be able to apply the finish as I go along. I have read it is possible to scrape the surface of oil treated wood so that wood glue can adhere to it but is that true and how strong will the glue bond be? I know lots of people use minwax wipe on poly. Can you use glue on treated wood? If you can answer this then you will have my eternal gratitude (now there's an incentive if I ever saw one!
