Looks great ! Don't forget to sign & date !
I test fit tops but finish them separately. Put a coat on the bottom side then flip it onto pyramids and do the edges and top.



Thanks for the tip. Followed that and the top went great!

Close one with danish oil applied far one waiting for danish oil tomorrow.

woke up super eager to see how it all dried ... since last time on my bench it caught a bunch of fuzzies ... as far as I could tell at 6am in the cold going quickly it feels super smooth! Pretty pumped about that haha.

Now if I can get the same result on #2 it will be a great week! haha

What do y’all do with oily rags?

For now I stack things on the towels on the back patio until they dry. Makes quite the mess haha.

Looking great!  I leave them on the shop floor until they dry.  Then, toss em.

I hang them over a steel handrail or chainlink fence to dry then toss them. A relatives house had a fire that was started by spontaneous combustion . It was a different combination of circumstances than oily rags but I take that stuff seriously.

I hang them on the edge of the garbage can then flip them over when dry. Sometimes they get left on my assembly table as well.

yep same here, that is why I put them on the back patio (no chain fence) maybe I could try my wooden fence?

again i would be so paranoid it would fall in squishing it up that they would combust.

Either hang them on a plastic trash can to dry or throw them in my fire pit.

If your that worried about it use a metal can with a sealing lid. This is what we had to use for the oily rags we created at my city job. You could buy a new metal paint can from the store and dispose of the rags in there. When you go to throw them in the trash wait until you place you can at the curb and then put them in a sealing ziplock bag with a bit of water in it. Cutting the oxygen will ensure they don't oxidize to create heat. Also if some combustion does occur the available oxygen is quickly used.

I feel like laying them on the ground like you do is more hazardous than other options but my opinion.

I just hang them over a ladder rung outside until they are stiff and dry then throw them in the trash.  I do like Drew mentioned and throw them in when the can goes to the curb.
