Porthole Vent liners in solid Oak supplied finish in Osmo 420 Extra Oil

Another set of 13 liners made along with 2 dog boxes for the same customer. (Click here for the Dog Box post) Normally all the liners I make are sent self colour (no finish), sanded smooth ready for the customer to coat. However on this occasion I was asked to finish them in the Osmo oil. On these it has been brush applied, being lightly sanded between coats to smooth off any raised grain and to act as a key for the next coat. The finish does have minor brush strokes present, but these are along the grain or circumference and is fitting for the job in hand. I am going to experiment with different methods of applying this type of oil to achieve a more flawless finish, so that I may be able to offer this service at an economical rate.  As per most of the round items I make these have been produced in a traditional manor using my old Harrison wood turning lathe.
