    Hi All,

    Can you believe it's nearly Friday!

    The topic for this week will be around finishing. What is your go-to finish, and why do you love it so? If you don't have one, that's ok, you can listen in and ask questions of those who do.

    I look forward to seeing you all again. Just a reminder to anyone who has not joined in before but is curious, it's a pretty chilled chat with no pressure to participate more than you want to (you will have to turn your camera on though, so be sure you are wearing a pair of trousers/dress).

    Planing to be there, but I will have to decline on the dress as it does not show me to my best advantage.

    Thanks all for the insights into finishing products etc.

    I've already ordered some bees wax and i'm sure that Dougs recipe is out there somewhere but hopefully he can share here as i didn't write it down.

    The concrete sealer i was talking about is the solvent based version, my next door neighbor did plain sealed concrete flooring with his renovation and i got a couple litres from him to play with but haven't tried it on timber

    1 Litre Pure Gum Turpentine
    1 Litre Boiled Linseed Oil
    qty of Beeswax

    Grate beeswax and dissolve into the mixture of the other two components.
    Start out with a lump about the size of a large egg.
    If all that dissolves add a bit more until there is a small residue of undissolved beeswax in the bottom of the jar.
    Stir or shake well before applying.
    Apply thickly with a brush, rag or pour on and spread.
    Apply several coats until it stops soaking in and pools on the surface
    Let it soak in and wipe excess off with a cotton cloth.
    Re-apply as required
    Great for benches, tool handles, mallets, garden tools, metal items etc.

    This is the place where I got my wax products. Carbatec in springvalue gave me their name - It's on the same street, Osborne Avenue.

    I think I arrived late, so I missed out when this was shared by Doug,
    I'd like to know if this was a wax oil mixture and how long would it take to cure?

    Paul, it's a utility grade finish. Great for workbenches, tool handles, including gardening tools etc.
    I used it on my shed stool, but I would probably not use it on any timber furniture that you would sit on in your going-out clothes.
    Also good for bare metal. It works on my holdfasts.

    I normally put it on thick, let it soak in for 24 hours then wipe it off and buff it up a bit. It still takes a couple of days to dry out.
    After wiping it down I use the cloth for wiping over the metal items. Of course take the usual precautions with used oily cloths to prevent combustion.

    As i was waiting for my bees wax to arrive today i actually had to look up what pure gum turpentine actually was.... man that stuff has a bit of a reputation as one of the more nasty chemicals that we might generally use.... and this is from me who uses acetone for all sorts of things.

    I mention it purely so anyone else not knowing much about will do their own due diligence on information.

    I guess at least one key is use in a well ventilated area and don't sniff the fumes.

    Cheers
    Phil

    And if I haven't already mentioned ... do not use on cutting boards etc that are used for food preparation or consumption.

    You should only be using food-grade mineral oil on these things anyway.

    Doug and Phil,
    Have you used Limonene? I think I'll use it as a substitute to gum turpentine. It dissolves wax quite readily and it smells nice and it's edible

    Looks like it might be a good thing. Let me know how it goes.
