Have got some 67 year old plum timber, some had a bit of rot in. No finish on it, might oil it.

You just gotta love that fruit tree wood.
Absolutely beautiful and i love the natural edge, finishes it off to perfection.
Great job.

Thanks all, just wondering about an oil for it, have tried some canola oil on a pohutukawa bowl but it is getting mould on.
