61  Irish Hardwood Timber / The Lisnavagh Timber Project / Re: Questions re purchasing wood on: 22 July, 2004, 14:55
Thanks for the kind words!

Opening times, as you saw, are pretty flexible.  Just call us and we'll fix up a mutually convenient time.  (If there is no answer PLEASE leave a message on the answer phone with your phone number and we WILL get back to you!)

Regarding your second question, a lot of our boards are 7 or 8ft long.   Some are perhaps 5ft and some are up to 16ft!   However, we can cross cut the boards if you like, so that you can fit them into your car.  You tell us where you want them cut.

63  Irish Hardwood Timber / Tricks of the trade / Re: mortise joints on: 20 July, 2004, 18:30
Hi Gerry

Roll Eyes You could try applying a thin layer of wood glue to the tenon and then wrapping a layer of cotton thread or very thin material over the glue.   Let the glue harden and then sand it down as required.

Also, from an internet search - "Swel-lock works miracles on wobbly chairs and shaky mortises". Smiley

Good luck & thanks.

If you really do mean "poles", why not see if eircom or the ESB have any old ones spare?   They are undergrounding a lot of domestic lines and they might be only too grateful for someone to take the old poles away!?   Just a thought.
65  Irish Hardwood Timber / Tricks of the trade / Danish oil or boiled oil? on: 19 July, 2004, 11:50
Is Danish oil safe to use on chopping boards?  

I was told that boiled (linseed) oil is totally safe and that it forms a hard crystallised layer below the surface of the wood after a couple of weeks, and that it is non-toxic.

But is Danish oil as safe?

I would be interested to hear any views on this.  Thanks.
