    Hi Old Geezer
    I almost always apply the 50/50 BLO mix on hardwoods . If I have a real light colored wood, I will sometimes skip the BLO step so as to not darken the wood.
    Same with baltic birch. Sometimes when making overlay parts for clocks etc. , I will skip the BLO and just spray laquer to keep the light colour. Then when making small fretwork shelves and things of that nature that will be selling at a reasonable price, I use BLO mix only... to seal the wood and leave it to the customer to finish it with a product of their choice.

    I don't finish the clock parts before assembly. Some do , but I prefer the stronger glue bond of finishing my products after they are built.

      Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

      Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
