Thread: Wormy Oak box

  1. #1

    Wormy Oak box

    A marvelous piece of red oak. I saturated the outside with BLO, then alternated wiping down and compressed air. Let it dry for a day then sprayed on very light coats of clear shellac.

    Looks great!
    Even visually, I can feel the tactile nature of the piece.

    Very cool, Joe. As was said above, it looks like a very tactile piece. You really want to pick it up and hold it.

    Thanks guys This is one piece of wood that sure makes me look good!

    The whole tactile thing is one of my favorite parts of woodworking. I almost always use wiped-on or rubbed-in finishes, as I really like to touch and feel the wood. Someone else had suggested that I apply enough finish to fill the holes, but I couldn't imagine doing that. This piece is really a joy to pick up and play with.

    Hi Joe, WOW very nice. I was wondering if it was difficult to turn that type of wood with all the worm holes?
