Thanks for your advice!
Just when I thought I knew what to do there I get more comments saying I shouldn't do it ;)Thanks for your advice! I guess I will go and by an oil finish specifically made for kitchen items.. Some of the ones i can buy here in Germany are still based on Linseed oil but they have some additional additives... That should be safe though...
Thanks for your advice!I think, you are the third person now suggesting to use vegetable oil for a finish. The others told me to use Linseed oil. So, I will probably go along with you guys and do it in the next few days... I will update the post then. See ya
Thanks a lot!
Yeah I get your point - in that case it would need a cape as well ;)I plan to apply some Linseed oil when I see first signs of damage. I am testing how long it lasts without finish, first.
Thanks! You can paint yours as you like, but I like mine like it is - the raw wood look..Send me photos if you paint one of these!
Thanks a lot!!
Thanks!In that case I will be waiting for pictures of yours ;)
Thanks! I placed it at some distance to our stove and sink to protect it :)When I see first signs of damage I plane to apply varnish.However, your idea to use mineral oil sounds great, i might try that!
Hell yeah! That gave me a big smile :)
Hey, based on your idea I made my own design. A spartan like warrior knife block. Have a look here.Thanks for sharing you idea!
I would be interested to see a metal version of this!
