Hello Brian, thanks for your advice.

Thanks for the question Pablo. I don’t use a thinner for Tru-Oil, and never have.

I’ve never really looked into it, but I do know that the product goes on super smooth and is loose enough that you can get a good coat by wiping.

It also dries slowly enough that you can go over the same area multiple times without the surface getting tacky.

This stuff applies like a wiping varnish, so it’s a super easy process and doesn’t require any thinning.

Thank you again, and happy building!
