The first coat of tung oil has dried. It soaks in pretty deep, so you don’t get much of a shine until the third or fourth coat.
Since the finish soaks in, not much dust gets stuck to the outside of the guitar. Instead of sanding the first coat down, I am going to try just a simple rub-down with a piece of a brown paper bag. That is usually what I use to polish the final coat, but it seems to be enough to smooth things down.
The second coat goes on quickly. It only takes a few minutes. I let this coat dry for half a day and came back later to repeat for a third coat. I didn’t bother attaching pictures of the third coat, they all look the same until the finish starts to build up.
