    That seems to happen a lot when I was in during the 70's and 80's. I work for the Miltitay now and its not as prevalent anymore. You can't even librate an old wooden pallet.

    Yeah, I wish my dad was still around to ask about the axe and the duct tape. There is nothing and no damage to the wood under the duct tape.

    There is no point in cutting BLO with turpentine, it will dry too fast. Since RLO is slow (very slow) drying it allows you time to work the dirt and grime out of the stock. I would not use BLO cut...
