  • Finishing

    Have not posted here in awhile, have moved over to Facebook for most posts and Questions. So I will share a facebook post that I made.


    Cut more things than I thought over the Summer. Sacramento in the 80's so tomorrow everything gets a bath for about 10 minutes in WATCO natural oil. Then rest for about an hour, wipe off and spray with air. Back into the box with fresh newspapers . Will wipe them down again after that one more time. Then a few days rest. Everything except the trivets will get a couple of coats of DEFT semi-gloss lacquer spray. Why did I post? to share how I do it, and get last minute advice.. Thanks in advance.

    I don’t have any advise as you are doing what I do, but I do have a question. Where did you get those trays? I used to have a diabetic dog that required special food from the the Vets office. A case came with trays about the size of yours. He has been gone for a few years. I still have some and use them like you do, but the are getting old and wearing out and soon will have to be replaced.

            Only on a couple of Items.. Started with making whirligigs about 20 years ago.. got to the "I hate to paint" stage and moved on to fretwork.. Now I am into the hate to finish stage.. (better than painting) I wait to do a lot at one time to save on cleanup..

              I need a wait and see timeout. Used Watco Natural 275 VOC Danish Oil , which is new to me. Got sticky after about 10 minutes of drying time. Looks ok. time will tell. Never got sticky before , used Natural 350 VOC Danish Oil which I had to get in Nevada.. A California thing. I sure hope it will work. so far the end grain looks better , just worried about what happens when I give it a lacquer spray.. I will wait a time with Patience.

                Thank John for the tips. For "dipping" I use Deftoil Natural.

                I hear many products we use every day, such as mineral spirits and even turpentine, are now banned in the Left Coast.
