Oil Stain Absorption in Dry Wood

Posted By: Peter Yorston <pgyorston@accesscable.net> (24.138.51.48)

I am up to the part of staining my 1910 Oak recline couch. I am using a product called Old Master's interior Oil Wiping Stain. Should I add a small portion of Turpentine or Mineral Spirits to the first coat to aid it absorption?

As I stated in a previous message, the wood is very dry, as this item sat in the rafters of my parents garage in Atlantic Canada, since I can remember (I'm in my 40's now).

I am looking to use this in the kitchen, as they have traditionally been used up here, and am wondering after staining, what should I use to cover the wood to protect it?

Many thanks for any help.

Peter.
