Smeared with the blood of heathens is traditional, isn't it?stuckinthemud":2eiahrxo said:I am about to complete a crossbow stock built from pretty knotty mulberry. How would you finish it?.......
TruOil is great stuff for this sort of thing. I've done a couple of rifle stocks with it and they look great several years later having spent hour outside in both baking sun and torrential rain.Phil Pascoe":jiybqkru said:TruOil.
A tip I saw on here to counter this. Use a pin to make a hole in the foil, its plenty big enough. Then store the bottles upside down in a small tupperware tub.profchris":1l72eus9 said:I've used Tru-Oil a lot for musical instruments. Easily available online, usually via eBay.
I recommend the smallest possible bottle, unless you are planning to build more in the near future. After a few months open it thickens and tends not to cure properly.
