Oil bath...

When applying oil to small boards…. I use an Oil Bath..

Put a few inches of grapeseed oil in the bottom and then a rack over for letting the excess drip off.

You can continue to “baste” the boards until they are saturated…
Leave dry for a few hours and then buff…

Nice. True production.

Is grapeseed oil another form of wine? It would be nice if it was.

Grapeseed oilis a new one on me. I guess it doesn’t go rancid like some other oils?

Good idea!

I use the same sort of setup for my scrollwork, only it’s a soak in lemon oil instead of grapeseed.

Very clever Sir!

I have not seen and grape seed oil here. Is that local to just Australia?
Nice way to get them full by basting. I have heard that should be done with an oil to seal a food related product.

Nice idea! I have been using aluminum tray’s, but they are not sturdy when the project is heavy.
