Hi, D. For some further info, look down the board to a thread titled "Using Boiled Linseed Oil" that was started on 5/5/00.
Did you use raw or boiled linseed oil? My guess is that you used raw oil. If the can just says "Linseed Oil", it is raw. This will dry in a couple of weeks and there is not much that you can do to speed it along.
