I've seen a number of references to using oils to finish the fret board. However, often, no clarification is given. I see some use olive oil, but… what kind? I also see tongue oil mentioned...how would you use it? Heated? rubbed in? how many applications? I also see Mayo mentioned. What brand?(joking)
I use orange oil and bees wax. Works great, and you can put on as many coats as you want. I also use it on the neck. Very durable, and if the neck gets dinged or scratched, a little light sanding and a coat of orange oil and bees wax makes it new again.
I bought a gallon of Boiled Linseed Oil at Home depot? I think? If not it was at Lowes. That gallon will last me forever. I heard it has to be boiled or it may stink later???

Has anyone tried walnut oil? According to Wikipedia, it dries faster then boiled linseed.
