I have an old Quebec blanket box which I think is made of made of ‘butternut’ wood. It was stripped of paint some 40 years ago and has been left unfinished ever since.
It is a beautiful piece made with single 18″ plank sides and top.
I intend to sand it down and am looking for suggestions on how to finish with a natural look that will be long lasting. A Min wax finish has been suggested – is this a good idea.
Thanks for your help.
PS Sorry this should have gone to the ‘Finishing’ section – I’ll post there.
