Wood Treatment (and paint?!)

Some random notes

Linseed Oil

  • Raw Linseed Oil. 100% pure, slow-drying helps wood retain its natural moisture content which retards cracking, checking, shrinking, and aids it to be water-repellent. Should be used for equipment that is frequently exposed to exterior factors, such as the weather where drying time is not a consideration. Use: brush-on thinly on dry surface, can be thinned with turpentine, multiple coats are possible but allow each coat to fully dry before applying the next.
  • Boiled Linseed Oil. Is not boiled but contains driers to speed film drying and hardness. Linseed oil without this additive can take over a week to dry. It is better to use on furniture or tools that need preserving.

PS:Both enhance brushing and leveling when added to oil based paints and varnishes.
