Danish museum Frilandsmuseet (out door museum) – once again.Spending time in a place I love back in 2014.

One of the most mysterious things about Danish modern furniture to me when I started making it was this strange soap finish that is talked about so often. I wondered, “What is this all about”? Well, the easy answer is that it is a soap that is simple washed onto the wood surface. You may wonder how that protects the surface, though.

The continuation of the Pumice and rottenstone as wood fillers. I let the BLO (Boiled Linseed Oil) harden for 1 week on the boards.This is my spraying table that I use. The bottom is on a lazy susan swivel so that it can turn 360 Degrees. I made a block that I can set on top of it that has a bunch of screws through the plywood so that I can put items on top of the screw points and not have the wood sitting on the flat surface and get finish creep under the boards. The spray gun that us...
I actually completed this on Father’s Day and got it in the mail this past Tuesday. After the glue up, I had to plane the fingers that were proud as well as lay down a finish. I cleaned up the joints with a low-angle block plane one evening and then oiled it with two coats of Watco Danish Oil (Natural) on Sunday and Monday. Dad received it last evening. He had just walked in the door when I called so I got to listen while he opened it. That was pretty cool to hear his reaction. He did...
