This is my first time using boiled linseed oil for a finish I've done put one coat on waited 20 minuets and wiped off the access and put it up to finish drying how often can I put another coat and how many will be enough?

Yaxely is right on the button with the BLO.

I sometimes add a bit of oil based stain to the BLO to add some color to woods that don't darken naturally with oil alone. After the BLO dries for several days I usually put a spar polyurethane finish on the stick to help protect during use.

Randyl476 remember our humidity down here can add to the drying time. If after 24 hours it is still a bit tacky give it another day with some time in the sun.
