“LEOPARD WOOD – NECKLACES RACK” As requested by my better half ! Make me a necklace rack..
So here it is made from the last of my Leopard wood with a range of odd knobs. Cut on my dear old scrollsaw and edged with my Palm router. Also on the back are countersunk holes so the knob screws sat flat, and a couple of key hole slots to hang on a couple of pluged screws. Finnished off with a bathe in a vat of tung & lemon oil plus 3 coats of beeswaxs. Thank you for checking out my project and best of luck to you all for 2014. Big Bazz Windsor England::

Lovely Bazz! How long do you soak your projects in the tung and lemon oil, and how long does it take to dry? Really like the eclectic assortment of knobs! Thanks for sharing and Merry Christmas!

Hi thanks CFrye . I treat my wood twice in tung oil. First time a 50/50 mix of tung oil & white spirits for around twenty minutes leave to dry for 24 hours then resoak in tung oil with a dash of lemmon oil for smell for upto an hour or so depending on the density or porosity of the timber.
The timbers will only take in what they need eg WENGE only 10 minutes as its very porous. Red oak loves it perhaps an hour makes it really rich. Cherry 20-30 minutes. Keep your eye on it drying as it will keep bleeding for sometime use paper towels. A lot will also depend on room temp. Note this is a flamable mix and its posible for oil soaked cloths can self ignite ! Always store used cloths in a well ventilated area for disposal. Its a slow proccess of oiling drying and waxing over 3/4 days but should look amazing for years. BazzA.

Thanks Bazz. I’d read that lemon oil will ooze for a long time.

That’s a very fun project! You did a great work on cutting the letters. Pretty neat job. The leopard wood looks
awesome.

Surfside thanks for your comments : This Leopard wood is 25mm thick and hard as rock but take youe time with good blades and you get a great finnish.
