    No I have just looked it is resin they take the air out of the wood and replace it with resin, so in that case you should be able to use Danish oil to pop the grain.
     
  2. Cool will try that on the oak scales. I have a left over peace to try on. Sand first and oil with the dust on to fill the graingrooves?
     
  3. I'll give it a try! If it's better I certainly won't miss waiting 24 hours between coats for the tru-oil to dry, then a week for it to set before sealing.

    Thanks! I'll try to see what's up with the bandsaw and get cracking. I honestly don't know much about stabilized wood, but try wetting a piece of scrap. If it drinks water and the grain sticks out, then my guess would be it'll drink oil too. Just a question of whether or not the pores were closed when it was stabilized.

    I would have thought it being stabilized it would not drink water as all the voids should be full of resin, as they suck the air out and let the wood suck the resin in then bake it to set the resin hard.
     
  5. Yeah I also think so. Just thought it was worth checking if it took any water

    Do you remove rust on a buffing wheel or do you run a progression of sandpaper as well?

    I use sandpaper followed by dremel. After a lot of experimenting I've found the felt dremel pads cut well but leave micro-scratches and hazing so I follow them with a wool dremel pad or I hand polish. Lot of labor but it is worth it.
