Quote from: Recusant on July 16, 2020, 07:54:23 AMKeep tung oil in mind in the future. Similar to linseed oil (and the rags from working with it are just as dangerous) but gives a more lustrous finish that is also more durable. If you don't go too many coats, it can have a good satin finish, not too glossy.

Hobson would have been proud of my choice of wood. I have friended my local wood merchant and he lets me scrounge then ends of planks he cuts to length. I can take all I can carry to a tenner, in this case oak and sapele.

Quote from: Dark Lightning on July 25, 2020, 03:15:09 PMNice! That has some nice figure in the grain. I have a plank of sapele that I have yet to do something with.
