looks good. I'm curious to see how the wood will look after 5 or so years. I personally have had it turn black on me after awhile. It looks good now though!!

Tim, i'm not sure what you used to make it turn black? I have used a mix of half linseed and half mineral spirits on all of my original equipment for 20+ years. I usually give them a coat every couple of years. If they turned black I would have quit using it a long time ago!! I have several original wood tub washing machines that I use this mixture on with great results. I have used strait linseed oil and it works but can remain sticky for a long time. I found cutting it with mineral spirits works better for this use.

I've seen it happen. It's something to do with UV light changing properties. If it doesn't stay outside you'll probably be fine. Each to there own. It's staying away from my shellers.
