A little gift for you.
I made a fresh batch of our wood salve this week, and oiled our teak dining table to test the consistency. The difference after a fresh wood treatment is always so pleasing, and even still, a little bit surprising. The second image above shows an un-oiled portion of the table, and the next two images show a treated section after rubbing out the excess. After a treatment, the grain comes back alive and has such a beautiful depth in it’s sheen.
I’d like to share a 1 ounce tin of wood salve with two of you. Our salve is food safe and actually makes a great hand salve as well. It’s made with pure walnut oil, organic beeswax from our friends at Old Blue Natural Resources and an organic plant based preservative which I started adding to my formula with our kitchen jar in mind, which tends to get used more slowly than our general household and shop use. The oil conditions the wood fibers, while the wax provides protection that is natural and breathable.
You can use our salve to treat your wooden kitchen utensils, wooden bowls, cutting boards, drawer pulls and any other unfinished wood items that might need a little care from time to time. Simply leave a comment below before Monday Feb 22 and I will choose two winners at random early this coming week. The winners will receive a tin of wood salve and a natural fiber cloth for buffing with.
If you have a large lot of wood you’d like to care for, we also offer a 4 ounce jar in the shop, which unless you’re finishing large pieces of unfinished wood furniture, should last you quite a while.
Good luck! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
