The benches were completed last week, they had a good testing on the weekend and were then delivered. A tung oil finish was used, the knotty bench was a little more of a hassle to finish as the knots kept bleeding oil. It turned into a late night for me in the shop. Luckily I had some good finishing friends with me and good music. All the pictures I took that night, as I polished and tended the finish.
You may notice in a few of those photos it looks like I am brushing the wood, which I was. But it was a dry brushing to remove the steel wool tidbits. The brush is a very advanced Nano-bristle brush developed specifically for wooworkers and other finishers. The nano fibres attract any loose particles which then disapear forever. Beer helps too. And Swedish Snus.
