  • Finish for driftwood?

    Anybody know a good finish to put on driftwood? My wife's uncle asked me about it at christmas, and I said I'd throw it out to you guys. He doesn't want to stain it, just highlight the grain and give it a little protection. My thought was danish oil, but I figured someone here has probably done this before, and would have a more concrete answer.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    I'd use a watco danish oil finish, neutral tone.

      Never done it before, but I would agree that a Danish oil would probably do a nice job. I imagine the driftwood will soak up more finish than regular wood, so it may take several applications to get the finish looking even.

        Good thought, Bill. I would imagine dry driftwood will soak it in like a sponge.

          I am guessing that your clamps have probably spread due to usage. I am not aware of any aftermarket clamps that fit your saw. Did you look at ereplacementparts.com to see if they sell clamps for your model? Sorry I could not be of more help.

          I have a craftsman saw. The blade just slips out.

          I put those on my 20" Dewalt a couple years ago. Big improvement from the one Dewalt had....

          We need to know what saw you are using, as they have different clamps.
