Rehydrating Wood With Salad Bowl Finish and Hemp Oil

2 Materials
2 Hours

I love wood but not when it is all dry and cracking. I picked up this adorable glass cloche with solid wood base at an estate sale but it was dry and cracking and missing its feet.

I added new 3 little wooden feet and sanded the base well with my orbital sander with 120 grit paper then hand sanded to smooth the surface and open the pores.

here is the end result but let me share how I got there with my restoration steps below..

My first hydrating step was hemp oil, I chose Daddy Vans and it soaked it up quickly requiring 2 coats. See the sanded dry side on the left and the first coat of hemp oil on the right?

See more hemp oiled pieces I have done HERE.

The next day I used Homestead House's salad bowl finish to give it a waxed smooth sheen and finish. This is non toxic as is the hemp oil keeping the base safe for food such as cheese or fruit.

I did two coats and buffed well between coats.

This vintage thick glass cloche with gorgeous wooden base is now refreshed for years more service. It is going to look fabulous on someones dining table or counter top, right?

    The hemp oil can be actually very useful, and I am a big fan on it. It has a lot of benefits for your health, and a lot of people are actually using this. I have some health problems, so I decided to buy some ctfo products. I am using it for pain relief, and it actually works. It has a very good impact on skin, brain and heart. Some of my friends are using it in order to get rid of acne, and it really works. I have chosen the ctfo products because they are all lab-tested and are safe and reliable, which I think is perfect. CTFO is one of the fastest-growing companies within the cannabis health sector, and I decided to become a member of this company.
