Posted on Has anyone tried "seasoning" an old vintage plane like a pan instead of "japanning"

I actually followed this article back about five years ago, and it s great for cast iron pans.

That being said, it seems rather unnecessary for a plane as you don t need to use something food-safe to protect it. I d suggest just painting it, as this will stop the rust and will keep the black appearance.

Haha, yeah I should have clarified, I was mainly thinking about this due to the smells using the kitchen oven(and fire/explosion danger). My wife would freak out if I was using jappanning mixture in the kitchen oven on 500 degrees for an hour, whereas with flax oil I am just seasoning our cooking pans.
