    We cut a ton of wood yesterday, and she saw a piece (center of owl) that she wanted to keep as a picture frame. Well she decided to turn it into an owl, and a pretty good one at that! Here it is:

    Use teak oil, just a quick rub down with a rag. They will soak it up and bring out the natural colors of the wood. Mineral oil works too, I use that on my cutting boards :)

    Neat !!

    I second the oil, use it on cutting boards here, too.

    I sense a theme coming on your walls :)
