    Hi there,<br>This is my first project. I call it HammeRed because the design is from Joërg' s Hammerhead and my real name is Redouan( everyone calls me Red). I want to give it a red color touch but i don' t know yet how i' m gonna do that, but i am. I just glued it so i still have some work to do.<br>Here are some pics. Sorry for the quality but i took it with a cellphone.<img src="https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-MVhlHR_bjkA/Tx25HNUk-iI/AAAAAAAAAC8/BhHb9P823w8/s512/HammeRed.jpg" border="0" alt=""><img src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-wlOcIZ-sIdg/Tx25QEEByLI/AAAAAAAAAC4/cpjYPdM572c/s512/HammeRed%252520%2525282%252529.jpg" border="0" alt=""><img src="https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-f2nGCl89DM8/Tx25Zk_qEFI/AAAAAAAAAC0/LpWNnpaU5wA/s512/HammeRed%252520%2525283%252529.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br>One thing i don' t understand is why we have to put it 24 hours in linseed oil??<br>Someone can explain it to me,please.

    nice job<br>by leaving it in linseed so long the oil has a good time to really soak in the wood<br>linseed oil cristalises inside the wood,wich makes it harder i believe<br>anybody,correct me if i'm wrong!

    Thanks pipesmoker for your answer.<br>I guess i got to buy some but i don't really know where to buy that stuff.<br>Also i can' t find Thera-Band out here in Belgium. And i don' t like buying things on the internet.

    Toksick, you don't <i>need</i> to use linseed oil. That is simply an easy finish to apply, as you simply need to soak the piece in it, rather than brush or spray it on. <br><br>If you really want a more red color to it, you should stain it with wood stain or ink. Of course, doing this will also mean a mandatory few coats of varnish to protect the color, unless you like the aged look it will acquire with use.

Mijn néederlands is ook niet perfect.<br><br>Thank for your advises CaptainBacon.<br>I just want some red color touch to still see the wood through.<br>I think i' ll do the trick with a red pencil than vernish it. But i am gonna take my time 'caus i don' t want to do something stupid.<br>I got another project in mind for the moment inspired by Joërg' s Flying Buttress. A heart shaped one. I want to call it Piece of Heart and it will be a present from me to me for Valentine' s day( my girlfriend can' t use a slingshot).</span>
