The smell of linseed oil………………

IMG_4908

Adrian and Andy have finished a set of four oars – well almost.  The 11ft oars have been made from Douglas Fir.  The first two are solid.  The second two are sawn longitudinally, hollowed and glued together back to back.  Sadly, they all weighed about the same though the balance point is different.  I have applied a coat of cold-pressed linseed oil from High Barn Farm and this will be allowed to soak in for a few days before final sanding and varnishing.

  1. I am looking for Tom Kittle, woodturner, who sometimes exhibits in Southwold Methodist Church hall. He asked me to save the wood from the Laburnham being taken down tomorrow Tuesday 21 January. Please be good enough to forward this to him with my email address. Many thanks
