    Bush Oil on flesh really stinks

    So I'm sitting inside waiting the 30 minutes before coat two of Bush Oil goes on the drawer front of my first somewhat fancy shop furniture and I'm browsing the forum with my left hand holding up my head a la Rodin, and start wondering what that horrible smell is. I figure it better not be the burger my wife is kind enough to be cooking up for me. Then it slowly dawns on me that it must be the little Bush Oil I got on myself.

    I was just doing a little bitty area so I blew of the gloves today. I even rinsed my hands with water when I got in. Thankfully the smell is limited to a very close area - typing I don't smell it, pretending to be "The Thinker" I do. This stuff absolutely reeks on my hand. The funny thing is that I do not find the smell of the stuff offensive at all on wood in the shop - almost smells a bit pleasant even.

    Anyhow, that's my useless bit of trivia for the day. Hope you all are having a great weekend!

    Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.

    Based on something I saw Mark mention earlier, it's equal parts of BLO, tung oil, and urethane.
