Just completed this Warmoth SS (32") P lined fretless.
Danish oil finish - 11 coats.
The process was very time consuming (two days between each coat and a week or so after the final coat).
Buffed with 0000 steel wool and a little paste wax - another week or so before assembly.
The finish takes a while to fully cure (a few months) - after which it turns very hard.

It's a Maytag so probably yes!
I very reluctantly left a Kenmore washer and dryer behind when I moved a few years ago. The dryer was the one I grew up with, from the '60s, and still worked fine. I try not to think about that. :)

A good home finish takes time,
Yes - very tedious but really worth the effort.
I did these last year - it's amazing how much the finish hardens after 6-8 months - and continues to get harder.
