    <div>Am I going to have issues with putting polyurethane on a slingshot that has been soaked in linseed oil? I'm just worried that it might not adhere or dry properly because the wood has been treated with oil. </div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">

    i think when the oil has well dried out it would be ok.

    I don't know anything about finishing (ignorance and no experience ever!!), but my case as is it "close" to "poly or not to poly" I want to ask (excuse me intrusion in your thread) SuperGlue (CA) over dry varnish ... works? ... I believe that in both cases you have "oiled" surfaces = similarities ...

    You can varnish a ss that has been treated with linssed oil, i do to all my ss. But you have to make sure it has a dry and clean surface.<br><br> To clean the surface from any oil residue just sand it again with your last grit. <br><br>To check that the surface has properly dried just look at the sandpaper you used if it is really oily then it not ready, if it is dusty it is ready.<br><br>Another way to check is to leave it on a adsorbing surface ( kitchen paper, towel, I use an old white t-shirt) over night if it leaves a stain it is not ready<br><br>I hope this helps
