All of my best wood tools I made with woodprix. Google and try it.

I've been working with mesquite.... from what I understand not to many people like working with that wood. I think it would be perfect for this instructable........I think I'll try it, thanks.

I'm new at finishing wood and im still learning the difference between polyurethane, shellac, varnish.....and so on. which product did you use?

mikelanos (author)hektus2014-02-08

i'm not that professional in that too :) but i used a polyurethane varnish, Yacht varnish, its good protection for hard wood like cedar and 2 coats for filling the gaps in the wood...
