    That's looking sweet as! Good luck with the finish, being patient is hard but I'm sure you'll get it as shiny as you want eventually.

    i think i was watching some guy on youtube they were saying the same a dedman sand with wet and dry between coats don't think steel wool will work on tru-oil if your going for a super shinny steel wool works great with traditional wood stains and varnish
