      >(after use).

      >An uncle used equal parts linseed oil and tung oil with a touch of kerosene
      >(mebbe 10%). I don't know how kerosene would effect some of the glues used

      >wood. My uncle claimed that the kerosene kept away mold, mildew, etc. that
      >you might get with just the natural oils.
