Do you just go buy ‘Chinese Oil’, or is it something you concoct? Your finish looks great, and I’m in the beginning stages of my workbench build.

Lovely bench Lars.
And wonderful with a good big drawer under.
Is it a planning sled for the router?
Best thoughts,

Hei mads!
Ja, jeg laget meg en sleide som jeg la på toppen av 2 alu profiler.
Dette fungerte greit. Det ble en god overflate.
