A standard BLO Finish is something like a coat a day for a week, a coat a week for a month, a coat a month for a year and then once a year. But this is furniture not something you touch on a daily basis.

But if you buff the BLO with a paper towel after you apply it I would think thats as hot as you would want to go.

I do use BLO in combination with CA. The BLO acts as a catalyst so you don't use normal accelerator.

If you want a less gloss finish you should look into one of the Fiction finishes starting with "Shine juice" (1/3 BLO, 1/3 shellac/1/3 DNA) or a commercial one like Shellawax Liquid Friction Polish
