  1. Tung Oil Or Bees Wax

    Ha ha! I havent abused any bees... yet. 😈 Sorry it took so long to get back. Life gets in the way sometimes. Anyway, I'm experimenting with both boiled linseed oil and untreated. I haven't had a chance to do much intense work on them yet, but so far I'm liking the linseed one better. It seams to clean up a little easier and looks nicer. It does seem to stick a little less but at the end of the day it doesn't seem to make a huge difference from untreated boards that have been used for a while and have a bit of ware to them. Haven't tried the bees wax yet. It's not in block form. It's a new product, a thick liquid intended as a furnature polish. A guy at the hardware store said a few people have used it to finish wood but not for this purpose. I will post a pick of it when I can. It will probably be about a week. Thanks for all the help. I will keep you all posted.
  2. My work table tops are on there last leg so I thought it might be a good time to get rid of the canvas. I have 1/3 in plywood sanded smooth and was trying to come up with a surface treatment that might keep the clay from sticking. My idea was to try tung oil. A guy at the hardware store thought bees wax might do a better job for repelling the clay but did not know anyone who tried it. I have done a few searches and haven't found anyone who tried either of these. Just wondering if anyone here had tried either of these and how it worked out? Thanks, Chad
