These combs I made out of scrap pieces of oak. They are pretty easy and fun to make and people seem to really like them. I finished them with a bath of olive oil.

The combs look good. A word to the wise- olive oil will stink after a while and go rancid. Any plant derived oil will.
Mineral oil will work, but I don’t oil my combs. I use a friction polish. (See my projects.)

Thanks for sharing your work!

Thank you for the advice I was having a lot of trouble figuring out how to finish them. I actually decided to make them after seeing your video posted on woodwhisperer.com I really enjoyed watching your video it was very inspiring. Thank you for sharing your work and thanks again for the tips.
