1. Use on dried wood surfaces from which all coatings have been removed.
2. It is recommended that as many parts are sanded prior to assembly, as allowable, with a combination of 9”x11” SHEETS and 2-3/4” PSA ROLLS. Start with 80 grit then proceed to 120, 180, 220, 400 grits and higher if necessary. After assembly is completed continue sanding surfaces. For best results do not skip any grit range. For contours, small details and buffing out top coats use EZ-TOUCH SPONGES. Size all abrasives by cutting with a utility knife or scissors.
3. When sanding is completed, sweep away debris with a natural bristle brush.
4. Using the GRAY FIBRATEX PAD, sand with the grain to burnish and remove fine embedded particles, repeating this step with the WHITE FIBRATEX PAD.
5. BUSH OIL is best applied at 65 degree F to 75 degree F with moderate to light humidity.
6. For the first application, apply a liberal amount of BUSH OIL to all surfaces using the FOAM APPLICATOR – let stand for 30 minutes. Apply additional BUSH OIL as surface begins to wick oil into open pores.
7. After 30 minutes, apply an additional coat of BUSH OIL to all surfaces, and let stand 15 minutes.
8. Using CLEAN COTTON CLOTH, wipe wood completely dry. Position cloth so that a clean area is always in use. Ready for use in 14 to 16 hours.
For multiple coats of BUSH OIL, follow these additional procedures.
Be sure to allow 24 hours dry time between applications.
9. For second application flood surface with BUSH OIL. Next, wet sand lightly in direction of grain, using 400 or 600 grit abrasive. Be sure surface is always wet with oil. When wet sanding is complete, using CLEAN COTTON CLOTH wipe surface completely dry. Position cloth so that a clean area is always in use.
10. For third application use a small section of CLEAN COTTON CLOTH, ball shaped, to apply a light film of BUSH OIL to all surfaces, and let stand 30 to 45 minutes before buffing surfaces. Buff all surfaces until a smooth finish is achieved. Position cloth so that a clean area is always in use.
11. Continue applying BUSH OIL as in step 10 until the desired level of surface finish is achieved. One or two additional coats are typical, with up to five additional for presentation pieces.
