just to cover the topic ,,regardless,, if it is spam or not ? I have had a can of tung oil for over a year and had no problem with it ,believe it is by minwax , it came in a can with a pop top lid . to the topic of using it ,, it can provide a very high gloss if done correctly , for a high gloss it should be applied with several coats and each coat should be applied with progressively finer sand paper , the ideal paper is wet sand paper used in body shops of one of those abrasive Brillo like pads . starting around 500 grit and proceeding all the way up to 2000 grit . a brush or sponge may not be ideal for the high gloss , it can take up to 10 coats or as few as 4 depending on the wood . for a satin finish a very fine steel wool after each coat dries is all that is needed. We have done a lot of gun stocks and coffee tables using tong oil and Boiled linseed oil . it is not the same as spraying polyurethane , lacquer or varnish . it takes time and can take hrs or days between coats again depending on the wood the humidity and the temps .but when it dries it is rock hard and very durable . my .02
