Thanks Adrian,

Well I'm only in for 12 bucks or so,

Now that we're connected I will certainly be on your back about wood
finishing. :)

Danish was only 3 more dollars...

Okay, I will get some Danish oil for another project... I suppose that
canned stuff at home depot is okay? In the attached picture from home depot
they had different shades. That got me thinking there was pigment and now
there's another degree of freedom. So I didn't know what to get. My project
had all different kinds of wood so I thought adding pigment would reduce
the contrast.. Which of those oils should I have gotten?

And what about this video I found in youtube (it's at the bottom of my
inlay rooster page)..  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EDiN9TCZkHk

Yeah, I read that safety note about linseed online and on the package. I'm
freakishly afraid of fire so I made sure the rag was taken care of right
away. I hang them so they're a lot of heat loss. Next time I'll rinse them
in water or something and hang them. By the smell of it it's not soluble in
water.. I suppose it needs some detergent to connect it to the water...
