I’m finishing an old table made from a wire spindle that’s been sitting in my friend’s front lawn.
I sanded the table down and burned the wood using a shou sugi ban method.
Washed and brushed:
I then nearly put a quart of BLO into the table, it just kept soaking it up.here it is after I rubbed it out:
I’ve been letting the table dry for a few days now and I’ve noticed that in some areas the grain is nice and shiny, some areas it’s not.
Any idea why this is? I spent hours sanding the wood down with an orbital sander but realize now that I needed a belt sander to completely wvwn out the wood. I didn’t mind the grain sticking out a bit, since it’s an old wire spooln I thought it gave the table character.
Do I need more BLO?
