  • Re: Finishing problem, help!

    What do you recommend for the oil finish, Linseed oil, tung oil ?

    If I wanted to apply some paint or color to an area of the carving, do you apply the oil finish first and then an oil paint wash? What is the order of applying the various finishes?...

    Re: Carving Black Walnut

    You suggest sealing the ends of the 8 foot log and then splitting it. Would I need to seal the new edges also?

    Sorry for the dumb questions but I am in a learning mode here....

    A friend of mine is cutting down a black walnut tree and he offered the wood to me.

    Has anyone carved black walnut?

    What are the pros and cons with this wood?

    Re: A Fresh Block of Basswood

    I agree with Big Al, I like to finish one carving before going on to the next project. It seems like everthing that I do, I jump from one project to the next without completing something.

    Re: What does strop compound do?

    I also use yellowstone and I tried the yellow bar from flex cut but it seems too oily or greasy and it hard to get it off your hands or clothes. You can tell I really get into stropping.
