RE: [MedievalSawdust] Finish Question
- I have used a beeswax mixed with turpentine over the years. Found that if you add a touch (very
very small touch) of lamp black, when the wax dries it does not have a nasty white look in the wood
When I mix up a batch of wax, I like it to be softened to almost like turtle wax.
I am sure any color you add will ad the same as the lamp black.

Subject: Re: [MedievalSawdust] Finish QuestionMalcolm,I was able to find a copy of the book at half.com for under $10, $11something with shipping. Thank you for the recommendation. No doubt it will be very useful. I've got a decent supply of beeswax, pitch and some other things. I don't know if I'll use the pitch, but I do have it. We are making a simple tressle table to use mundanely in the kitchen and I thought this would be a great opportunity to experiment with finishes. I'll likely go for a verdigris green.Caileigh

- When you use your smoke alarm as a kitchen timer, it's not really the same as starting a fire, is it now? That's the line I've taken with the kids and I'm sticking to it. My husband I don't have to worry about. It's highly unlikely that he'd notice, which at times is very convenient. He usually just wants to know if he needs to go pick up take out or not. Gotta love a man like that.Caileigh

But how can you tell if the roast goose is done without setting off
the smoke alarm?
