    Don't spare the elbow grease. The more you buff the better result you get.

    Arkane, thanks for the heads up. I kept putting coat after coat of oil and it looked like crap. After reading your post i started buffing the finish with a soft cloth and BANG. The finish started looking awesome. I now have a new found respect of oils over varnished. Thank you, Roger.
