    Re: Plum wood

    p.s. i've got a bleached basswood polar bear that i did about 9 or 10 years ago and finished it that way and is still perfect today. No yellowing or anything. I've also got a plum (tame) walking stick that I did in tung oil and it looks real good also, just a tad shiny for my taste, but figured it needed the extra protection for outdoor use. It is beautiful wood so take good care of it.

    Colin - Take a small piece and try plain old clear kiwi shoe polish (the wax in a can). Rub it in real well, let it dry, and buff. It's simple, will bring out the grain and protect the wood (indoors). If it gets dusty, just rebuff it.

    Plum wood

    Goodmorning,
    This is my first time here as I am not a woodworker I couldnt put two pieces of wood together. I am a regular on the carving section though and I put a post there this morning and after the fact realized I probably should have posted it here. I am looking to see if you had any suggestions for me in finishing this carving as to what to put on it once it is done. The wood is wild plum I am told and I dont want to cover up the beauty of the wood. You can read my post on General Carving for more info.
    Thanks in advance
    Colin
