tung oil storage

Tung oil is a popular nish for wood projects. Theres just one problem with itif you dont useit all up, the leftover oil quickly turns rancid from air trapped inside the bottle. To keep it fresh, store the leftover oil in a collapsible plastic bottle ($7 at a photographic supply store). The accordion sides compress to drive out the air.If you have a little air left in the bottle when its collapsed, drop in some marbles to raise the oil level to the base of the bottles neck before tightening the lid.
