I managed to find a few minutes to put the first coat of finish on my little
cherry clock tonight,
I fumed it with 26% blue print ammonia in a sealed plastic tent for about 36
hours. For a finish I am using 1/6 pure tung oil, 1/6 boiled linseed oil,
1/3 satin defthane and 1/3 turps. I flood it on, leave it for 20-30 mintues
then wipe off all the excess.
You can see a 1" wide board between the two doors that didn't get fumed, but
I put some finish on to see the contrast.
I like this better than the lye, Shim, your off the hook, and *much*
than the RBS shtuff. Two or three more coats, some wax, and then it will be,
"time for some assembly..."
Every neighbourhood has one, in mine, I'm him.
