A quick job came in the shop, a request for two additional bobbins for a Canadian Production Spinning Wheel. Also made a peg to hold the crank and provided a ‘chicken nut’ and bolt for the clam shell tension mechanism.
The first coat was a mixture of Moses T’s St. John’s Oil and red iron oxide and yellow ocher. I allowed this to dry overnight, then a light sanding.
I then sealed it with shellac followed by a coat of Moses T’s St. John’s Oil and burnt umber. The weather was so nice I put them outside to dry.
Then a thin coat of Moses T’s St. John’s Oil and black iron oxide. Turned out fine and the customer was happy.
