Finished Benches

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.
