I just buff it with a T shirt. You can apply wax as a final finish if you want.

If you want to do several coats in shorter time use armorall. Apply some armorall to a small area of the wood. Then follow up with some tru oil on your fingertips and rub it in until it gets tacky. Then let it harden. You would then wait about 20 to 30 minutes before sanding and doing the next coat.

Google armorall and tru oil for more details. There were some good posts on rimfire central about the process. I've tried it and was happy with how much faster I could get repeat coats done.

I do a lot of work with tung oils. The method listed on the can or bottle is the best way. Normally a t shirt or some combination of 0000 steel wool. Use the manufacturers instructions.

HOWEVER.... When finishing wood, I've found (and I do a lot of carved walking sticks). I will sand the wood up to 2000 grit sandpaper. The wood will feel as smooth as you can imagine before I put on the true oil. When its done, it shines like glass and feels like it too.
I've done all different experiments, but I promise you, getting the wood sanded smooth with 2000 grit sandpaper is a night and day difference. I wish I could let you see the different finishes on my walking sticks.
