I don't know which "tung oil"finish you are using ,but most likely it is a wiping(thinned)varnish that contains absolutely no tung oil. If it is Formby's(Minwax) it is over 50% MS.I would suggest rh111 go to the library and invest some time learning a little about finishes.

All of the major tung oil finishes Minwax,formsby,gillespie etc are either wiping varnishes or oil varnish mixes. and contain no tung oil. If it doesn't say 100% pure tung oil it isn't. When iI read tung oil finish I thought Madison Avenue strikes again. I didn't realize you were using pure tung oil. If you like the look of a close to the wood finish and have the time it takes to apply multiple coats and wait for it to dry between coats great.
