Guys,

Just got my hands on a very nice 100% tiger stripe birch stock. \:D/

Who has some suggestions for really highlighting the striping and giving the stock a nice good finishing?

Also, the striping that is seen in the wood is due to what? Is this the grain pattern coming through or some other man made artifact? Inquiring minds want to know!!

The low res pictures really don't capture the real personality of the stock...or perhaps it is my digital photography skills...

Aloha Weavo:

Congrats on a really nice find! The wood looks to be in excellent condition.

It doesn't look like you need to do a whole lot to it as the stripes are already very prominent. In fact, the "dull" worn finish is also very attractive and full of character.

The stripes are natural and not man made... this looks to be a really NICE one!

Again, congrats!

Aloha,

Tom O.

Thanks for the comments guys! The overwhelming response was "DON'T TOUCH IT"!!

Roger that!

So what oil should I use on it? I bought a can of BLO but I heard that Pure tung oil is good to. Is there much difference in them as far as looks go?

What is the best way to apply either of them?

Thanks!
