No socks or olive oil, just lots of coats of Tung Oil. That's it, pretty simple, huh!!! Probably at least a dozen coats, because half or better gets sanded back off. Then the final coat of Tung oil with a bit of "rotten stone" to give it a nice satin glow. None of those stocks are finished yet, just thought you might like to know. Still need to fill some of the pores in the wood. That is what really takes so long.
God Bless, Frank.
