Was reading threads (being new here there seems to be about a gazillion hours of catching up to be done) and saw in one discussion about where to buy cheap mineral oil a referral was made to a beeswax salad bowl finish, which appears to be nothing more than beeswax and mineral oil. So, I'm wondering if anyone has any experience in making their own mix, and if so, what proportions? I really like the idea of environmentally friendly, user safe, inexpensive finishes that I can make myself.
Right now I have a nice little walnut bookshelf to finish. Got it sanded to 220 and trying to decide how to best give it a reasonably durable yet natural looking finish. I'm about to mix up some homemade to the tune of equal parts mineral spirits, BLO and spar varnish. Any thoughts?
