Anyone try using this on your bows. A friend of mine who makes custom guitars sent me a jar after I gave him some of my walnut

He made this fir me and it’s finished with it. He used it fir all his wood working projects. Looked it up. It’s $50 a jar but seems it would go a long ways. Sort of rubs on like tru oil but is a soft paste till you rub it

Yesterday I sprayed the bow I was finishing with helmsman spar. It didn’t set up right so this morning steel soiled it off and put this odies on instead. This one says for the oiliest of woods and darkens with age. My riser is a tropical rosewood so that should be good

My first experiment with it was tubing it on the leather stack after sanding it on this western knife

Neat! I like learning of specialty stuff like this. I may give it a try some day.

Sorry for sideways instructions Might be a bit glossy for bows but should be pretty

I've never used it but a friend of mine who builds Mandolins uses the clear and it makes for a VERY nice finish.

Look how it adds a unique luster and pulls out the grain of this osage bow

This 150 year old Black Cherry tree had some cool defects inside. This one looks like a steer head. Which the friends I made it for are horse and cattle people so they loved it.

These tables only have Odies Oil then Odies Wax. So you can not harm the finish. Even if you dent or mar the wood just add oil or wax and then it has more character.

Do you always do oil and then wax ?

From: Gaur Professional Bowhunters Society - Associate Member
Date: 30-Dec-21




I guess the one I have is oil? Doesn’t say oil or wax on it

From: Altitude Sickness

Odies oil and Odies Dark and butter have waxes in them. So you can use what you have. Apply it lightly, not to heavy. A little goes along way. With ALOT of elbow grease. Then buff or polish It’s More work than a varnish or urethane coating. But much higher quality

Thanks Jay. Read the part about polishing once it’s dry

From: Altitude Sickness

How did you learn about it. It’s not widely used.

From: Onehair
Date: 30-Dec-21




I have been using it for a year now. The only thing that I have found as a better moisture barrier is epoxy. I use the oil then the wax. I also have the butter but can't tell the difference. The only draw back is it does take some time to fully cure. The easiest application you can find.

My friend who I gave some walnut to gave it to me to try as a gift

So Randy...what is that for that he made?...that wood piece?

From: Gaur Professional Bowhunters Society - Associate Member
Date: 30-Dec-21




For putting cheese , crackers on etc. He told me today the hole is for hanging but also a ikea tea candle. Term everyone is using for such things is “charcuterie“
