« on: April 02, 2017, 09:21 AM »
I was hoping someone could help me here. I applied 4 coats of pure tung oil on a walnut top  and it seems  blotchy, so I sanded it withe 400 grit and it turns white and clogs the paper . It looks very uneven help please

Have you tried wiping it with turpentine?
I usually thin it is lacquer thinner or Turps.

You might be better off with scotch bright than 400, or scotch bright with turps ??

If it's clogging the paper, it's probably still to wet.

You could also try using Vlies from Festool or similar product from 3M etc to burnish the oil into the pores. I also agree that there may have been wet oil lurking in patches for you to get that clogged paper.
