Lemon oil? :?

Nice form.:2tsup:
That is a nice form. Reminiscent of some expensive one's I've seen in Art Galleries. Lemon Oil is a wise choice.
A testament to it's ability to enhance wood: I have an Oak cabinet with carved doors. It's 2.1m long. We left it in our house with no heat or cooling for six years while we wandered around the country. When we moved back, the doors had cracked badly. I could stick my little finger into one crack. I was going to fill them, and was looking for the right stuff. A lady working in a hardware store told me to soak the cabinet in Lemon Oil, and keep it wet for a week or so.
I filled a bowl with Lemon Oil, and set it in my garage. Everytime I walked by the cabinet, I would dip the rag in the oil and wet the cabinet down with it. Within a week or so, the cracks had completely closed up.
It's good stuff.
