Matt that looks amazing! What are the dimensions?

I've been riding wood (fnar fnar) a lot lately with my lad surfing south coast dribblers. Amazing things.

Matt23 said...

Yeah its had a couple of coats of thinned tung oil. Needs one more... then the last coat of pure tung. Ive used it before on a kitchen work surface and an exterior door. Good stuff.

Papa Joe said...

don't forget people that you got to be careful of any rag that has been used for applying oil, if you leave it all bunched up it can self ignite!

GRAYMAN said...

That is news to me Joe. Sounds like news I needed too! :-0

Have you ridden these yet Matt?
