Wood Treatment

Sanding is complete and the final step before paint/stain is treating the wood with a 1:1 mixture of linseed oil and turpentine. The hope is by conditioning the wood that has dried out over the years will result in longer paint life by preventing the wood from sucking out the paint and putty oils causing premature failure.  The stuff also smells great!
