If you see the abbreviation “BLO” on a woodworking or wood finishing website, what exactly does it mean?
The abbreviation BLO is used instead of writing Boiled Linseed Oil. When talking about Boiled Linseed Oil, it can get tiring typing Boiled Linseed Oil every time Boiled Linseed Oil is mentioned in a post about Boiled Linseed Oil.
It’s annoying to read too, so that’s why woodworkers use BLO instead.
