Finish for my cleaning stand/box
I used some left over mahogany to build a box/stand to hold my gun cleaning supplies and support rifles while cleaning them. I left it unfinished. But now after cleaning my firearms a few times on it, it has absorbed a few stains of Hoppes 9, Brakefree CLP, etc. Now I am regretting that I was lazy in the beginning. Is there somthing simple to improve/preserve the wood's appearance? Would rubbing linseed or tung oil into the wood help? I'm not looking for a show piece, just something that I can leave on the coffee table occasionally without it looking like it belongs in the garage. Any suggestions? Much appreciated.
