Barbel & Roe buck carving


Recommended Posts

Hi Andy, after many instances as you described, including 10 mushrooms seats I did for a school which all pissed sap out of the knots and centre pith and had to re-sand and finish them twice![emoji85], I dont put any oils on cedars/pines or green oak for that matter as it just doesn't soak in at all , I just do two heavy coats of clear wood preservative(ever so slightly tints the wood but brushing it in also helps clean up any sawdust still left in the details) and then it's upto the buyer in 6 months or so what finish to apply. Teak oil does work on the mentioned timbers and does tint slightly and I also seen some coloured wood preservative but have yet to try it, cheers Lee. 

Thanks Lee, I have been using the Rustins quick drying decking oil on different timbers for a while now and have found it excellent. It says that it can be applied to damp timber which is good. It’s strange stuff to paint on but dries well. I will have to experiment with sealing the resin on the cedar with different products. I’ll let you know if I find a solution. Regards, Andy
