been asked a few times how I make the wipe-on finish, this is how I mix it based on Maloof's recipe. 3 equal parts of blo, tung oil and spar urethane... heat up the boiled linseed oil then the tung oil, heat them both with a bit of turpentine to thin it out, finally I slowly add the urethane. make small batches and apply it hot!
had to take a break from the shop to complete a few UX/Visd tasks. site, catalog and print material are done. it was definitely fun going back to my basics, almost 20 years in the industry and I miss it tons... but can't lie... I rather be woodworking... now back to the shop!!!
these little guys were found by our neighbor standing in the middle of the florida turnpike. braved the incoming traffic, rescued them and brought them to us. soon they will be strong and healthy to be reintroduced to the wetlands they belong to!
