The weather seems to have gone from bad to worse, at least the cars have stayed dry! So the only work I have been doing is reclaiming some mahogany timbers that were left in the garden by the previous owner, to rot, and after cleaning them up, they turned out to be well seasoned usable timber, which only needed a few nail holes filling, after which I have used them both for making window sills and shelving. All of which I have left natural, and used my home made beeswax polish to bring out both the colour and the grain.
Filling the nail holes took some time due to the number, but those who have read my previous posts, will know, I only seem to work with pine or mahogany, and I learned a tip years ago, which I have always followed, and that is when you are sanding wood, make sure to collect some of the fine sawdust (thank goodness for orange marmalade jars!);
Then when you need to fill a hole, mix some sawdust with glue and fill the hole, once sanded, it just looks like nothing more than a blemish, just remember to refill the jar next time you are sanding!
