I have seen this finish in a lot of places. I decided I would give it a shot, and I am really pleased. I would not use it for a hard wearing application but at the same time, I would not hesitate to use it on drawer runners and such. It is very easy and I don't think the ratios are too critical. If you use mineral oil instead of BLO then it is food safe and can be used on butcher blocks and salad bowls and such. I think I may have found my "go to" finish for projects.
