Secret Wood Rings DIY
Firing natural clay WITHOUT A KILN
Weekend project: A forest dragon
I love this idea. I can imagine my family members walking past the board and making their moves over days with the game on display. A few questions though. You didn't mention making the chess pieces themselves, were they purchased or made? Also do you think if you made it deeper you could use pieces from a box set or maybe use metal for the shelves and magnetic pieces from a travel set?
I have had a bottle of the mixed oil in my shed that I have used for years. If it has gone rancid it certainly does not smell bad or seem to affect the timber adversely. I wouldn't eat it but I don't need to. I think something about the mix seems to keep it from going horrible. It also leaves my hands nice and soft.
I use a mix of wheatgerm and almond oil with a few drops of sandalwood oil (just for the smell) which I then mix with beeswax roughly 1:1. Sometimes I also add a small amount of carnauba wax. The bright yellow wheatgerm oil makes the honey tones in fruit wood really pop.
Here is my recipe:2 Tablespoons of Almond oil2 Teaspoons of Wheatgerm oil5 drops of Sandalwood essential oilmix with melted beeswax roughly 1:1
