I used boiled linseed oil and varnish to finish a hope chest. Is there some way to get the smell of the linseed oil out of the inside of the chest?
Michael Dresdner: There is, and it is rather easy. Seal the interior with one or two coats of shellac, or use Zinsser SealCoat, which is made of dewaxed shellac. It’s the one material that quickly and efficiently blocks oil odors.
