I'm glad you tried 100% tung oil... Some times folks won't use certain things cause their woodworking hero's didn't recommend what ever... Tung oil is a time saver......Strange too for some argue against it that have never actually used it!?!?!?

  This old guy years ago got me to putting tung oil on towel racks only on the dowels that hold the wet towels in bathrooms and kitchens also.....and it seemed like the longer it had been on there the better it looked compared to the rest of the towel rack...

  Lissa just tell folks it was your idea. Then watch their reaction......Oh so a female thinks she knows more than a man about woodworking things!!!!

Great looking box Lissa. I've never used tung oil for a finish myself. Maybe I should give it a try in on my next bandsaw box. Your uncle will be very happy with this gift.

That was it. But from what I understand he is showing it off to everyone

Doesn't surprise me at all Lissa...was very well done.

On top of that, you paid him the highest compliment possible by honoring him & his passion with something you made from wood.

Ya' did good on all counts!!:)

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
