    Thanks for the tip on the Mineral Spirits I had forgotten about the need to clean off all of the old goo embedded in the cabinets. Have an order for odorless mineral spirits on the way. I knew just what to get thanks to Bob Ross, and William Alexander. :D

    I have watched tutorials on YouTube from the Real Milk Paint Company. Very interesting, instead of mineral spirits they use Citrus Solvent. I have some on the way.

    Other then cleaning up the surfaces the W45 with the Citrus Solvent they really didn’t need much prep-work prior to the start of applying the Tung Oil. I thinned it with the Citrus Solvent and for the first several coats I wiped it on with very fine steel wool. I am now applying thin coats of straight Tung oil. The Cabinets are starting to look good I’ll apply a couple of more coats, a finale super fine steel wool buffing, a hard wax job and call it done.
