Re: SDF No3 paulownia wood board

How much energy is generated in the application of oils. 1) Creation of little plastic bottle. 2) Factory bottling up oil. 3) Factory driving oil to store. 3) Customer driving to store to purchase oil. 4) Disposal of oil soaked cloth/similar 5) Repeat every so often (dont really need to). Im not an...

Re: SDF No3 paulownia wood board

Ive found oiling outside in the hot summer sun best.The instructions say to wipe away any excess after 30 mins, Ive found an hour+ to be about right. The first 2/3 thi...

Re: SDF No3 paulownia wood board

Good looking board. Have you sealed it yet? Ive made about ten paulownia boards and a couple for mates. Ive always sealed them with tung oil.

Re: california surfcrafts (cork boards)

Re: california surfcrafts (cork boards)

With the blanks..Is the cork on each side of equal thickness? Cork/glass/cork..or is it thicker on the hull side? How does the cork sand? Does it knock chunks out

Re: Sea Sled
