Thank you Bernie. You can use Tru Oil over nearly anything as long as it is fully cured before adding the oil. Since I don’t know your exact circumstances, I always recommend a test board first just to make sure everything is working right.

Once you get past that, you can proceed to your project without any worry. I have applied Tru-Oil over lots of stains, and it’s been fine, though again a test board is the best weapon against a huge screw up.

Happy building
