Can't find a container big enough?Simple enough to get over.Mix the vinegar with flour, make it as thick or thin as you need.Thick enough to cling to the object, but thin enough to slop on.Leave over night and wash off.
Here are 2 I made, both from pallet wood.The heads are dowled and glued.
I have done this method a few times.A few tips.* Burn your container first, I have found some tins will melt or buckle in a fire. I tend to use old paint tins. They have a good life of about 5 to 8 burns. Longer if you don't leave them outside.* Fill the container as much as you can. The small bits will turn to dust. They can be collected and used in the blower of a metal melting furnace.*Time is your friend, start slow let the heat build up, forcing a burn can leave you with un burnt material.* Hard wood can be in free pallets. The soft wood can be used to make your fire.Just a few tips from some one who has done this.
Don't file it.If the head is that soft you can file it, junk it.Use a oil stone or a whet stone, it will keep an edge longer.
I have recently done this on 2 wooden mallets of mine. The 2 took 1.25lt of oil, the difference was great.I also did a set of beech handle engraving chisels and the mallet. but added 1/2 a bottle of lavender essential oil to the Linseed Oil. When my friend works that set you get a plessent smell.
I made 2.I slip on a cut down scaffold bar and I am away.
Made one, just need a glass funnel
