A while back I impulse bought a piece of bloodwood with no clue what to do with it. Lately, I borrowed an idea from a LJ to make a trivet. I actually found an 8×8 tile that nicely matched the wood and our kitchen. Unfortunately, during the finishing process, I added BLO (to bring out the color) and GF Arm-R-Seal and made a sticky mess that wouldn’t dry. Advice from LJ forums told me to scrub it with naphtha a couple of times, scuff and recover with Arm-R-seal (3xs). Thankfully, it was saved. Now if only someone could save my miters – lol. Just in time for thanksgiving use.
