Timber cleaning

ColinAColinA Posts: 392



Earlier this year i replaced the wooden lathes on my wrought iron garden bench, I bought some birch wood ones and gave them several coats of teak oil and then pure linseed oil. Over the summer the wood has now gone black with the rain, it does rub off to a certain extent but has got down into the grain.

Has anybody got any ideas on effectively cleaning out the grain

    Would that work on tool handles Edd? Got a few tools picked up from the scrappy that could do with something doing to the wooden handles.

    Ta Edd will give that a try. I guess it wouldn't be expensive to 're-handle' them if there is such a term, but would be more fun to keep them going as they are. image
