Well done : ) What finish do you use on them ?

Thank you. I usually finish them with mineral oil or walnut oil (if I have time to let the oil cure), and sometimes I’ll finish up with an application of beeswax.

Those are really attractive, like the wild patterns and the variety of wood colors. Great job!

Have your say...
