Someone just gave me a nice kit to make a detailed Macrame’ bag. I got all the jute cut ready to Macrame’, imagine my excitement. The jute looks rough instead of smooth but it probably will still make a nice bag; what counts is I will than know how to Macrame’ bags with three diamond shapes on the body of it on each side.
The wood handles were very rough so I hand sanded and sanded until I out them smooth as I could. It wasn’t easy since the handles are made from a layered type wood so it isn’t a very good quality. I would guess the wood is oak.
I don’t know anything about finishes so I have a question about how to finish these wood handles. I read that some use oils and some others finishes so I want your advise. I realize it all depends on my taste but I don’t know enough about this to even know what would be my options. Just ask me whatever you need to ask.
Would this be considered a woodworking project that I could post as my first project? I’m not sure since all I will be doing is sanding and putting some kind of finish or oil on the handles.
