Maybe one time I will remember to take photos as I nibble at the wood. Tthe first three pics are Cedar wood and the last three are Select Pine. Last night I finished these two and I applied one coat of Minwax Tung Oil with no gloss (my first time using some tung on wood work :-) and I was stunded at how much the color jumped out of the cedar.
These pics are before I choose how much to cut off the front leg to transform what I have began calling a Cell Phone Chair (CPC) into a Cell Phone Beach Chair (CPBC). The purpose of cutting the front leg is because it holds the cells, ipod etc more upright, it is harder to tip over (backwards that is), and all that have asked me to make them one say they like the CPBC look/design better.
If you have any advise on how or what to do with Tung Oil please let me hear it…thanks for looking!
