    Hi All,

    I about ten unfinished slingshots. I don't know anything about finishing the wood off. They all have a little bit of linseed oil, but I want to know about getting a high shine.

    Can anyone help with a good explanation?

    What products and how to do it is what I'm after.

    Thanks in advance.

    I use spray laquer.
    If you don`t get the high gloss shine you want just grind and polish it.

    I use brush on polyeurathane applied with a foam brush for 5 coats then buff by machine to even out the coats, then final polish with rubbing compound by hand;). Look at the global trade slingy for an example, and good luck!

  5. Moin moin,
    I like it of course Unspoilt and not through natural wood - or wood, something artificial,
    Therefore, OIL, worktop oil, or .... do not laugh, I'll Throw out into the fryer ...
    The hot oil let the water evaporate, and so may beautiful oil into the wood!
    Solid fat, it makes dark, liquid (in cold state) makes the color so

    ich mag es natürlich belassener, und nicht über naturholz - oder Holz, etwas Künstliches,
    Deshalb, ÖL, Arbeitsplattenöl, oder .... lacht nicht, ich schmeisse sie in die Friteuse ...
    Das heiße Öl lasst das Wasser verdampfen, und so kann schön Öl hinein in das Holz!
    Festes Fett, macht sie Dunkler, Flüssiges (im kalten zustand) lässt die Farbe so
