    Hi Brian and WELCOME to the Forum!!!

    I'm a New Yorker. Well I lectured once in NY, NY 40 or 50 years ago. However, the trip really changed my mindset about New Yorkers. I had lectured a few weeks earlier in Boston where everyone is supposed to be cultured. I don't know where they find the time to get culture they are so busy giving each other the finger and yelling at each other on the streets and sidewalks, etc.

    I had been told how gruff and crude New Yorker's were. Well everyone in NY was polite and helpful. No one needed a one-finger salute to or from the cabs and limos I rode in. I think the two cities got their reputations mixed up somewhere in the past.

    Again, I bid you welcome.

    Enjoy,

    JimB

    Hi from another New Yorka, big day tomorrow for the big blue!!!

    I am about to build an end grain butcher block and I chose a finish of mahoney's walnut oil and mahoney's oil wax finish. My delema is the site where I found this idea I can no longer remember how to find it. Hoping someone can help me with my problem, How much oil and how much wax to finish my board.
