Looks good! I was going to say that ” Tru Oil” is a brand name from Birchwood/Casey line of gun refinishing supplies, so it’s a trade name. Not true oil, as in rubbed with gun oil. I’ve done Hoppe’s gun oil on a walnut shotgun stock before, & it eventually came out glossy. But B/C Tru Oil is actually a French Polish, as I made & used in Jr High wood shop. So it dries quickly, but getting sticky first, before drying to the touch in about 2 hours. It does, however, take about 24 hours to dry completely for sanding, as it contains varnish & shellac mixed with linseed oil if I remember correctly how to make French polish…
