Hey all, I’m making products using BB. I’m considering doing some kind of simple finishing before shipping. I’ll be generally doing flat pack so I’m hoping for something I can do easily to the sheets either prior to lasering or after.
I wiped down some things with Murphy’s prior to taking photos and I liked how it deepened the color a bit and brought out the grain more but I’m wondering if there is something better suited to this. I know things like mineral/orange oil exist so I’m wondering if anyone has tried anything like those other than stain and poly.
Ask a woodworker their favorite finish, get a different answer for each
I love Odie’s Oil, it smells nice and I can spread it on with my hands without being poisoned by it. A small jar goes a very, very long way. If you get it, also get the Bloxygen to keep the jar from curing over time (it will last that long!). I use it on the back of cut puzzles by spreading it between my hands and then rubbing it into the wood surface so that I don’t deposits in the cuts.
