I continue my Pallet Wood creations by building a machine stand that will support my Spindle Sander and Surface Planer. It really does look like it's over kill on strength, but you never know what future needs that may arise.

This really wouldn't work well for a workbench because the table top is not high enough, but for my Spindle Sander, the working height of its top is ideal for my height.

  1. Building my workbench from Pallet Wood. Today, I’m applying Linseed Oil to
    the top.

  2. HAHAHA… made a bowl gave it to my sister in law and shes still
    living…classic.

  3. +Sandi Fathers That’s the story of my life. Thanks for watching.

  4. I have worked with linseed oil before. What I discovered is that when it
    dries (really dries, after a week or so) it’s like you haven’t applied any
    oil at all. What happened to this workbench-top?

  5. +Simon de rycke I have found very much the same results as you. From what I
    hear, re applications are necessary. I may put another coat of linseed oil
    and after it dries, put a coat of poly on it. The hurdle I face now is
    taking my planer and oscillating spindle sander off to do this procedure.
    Thanks for watching!

  6. thanks for doing this video. exactly what I was looking for.
    I’m going to make a bread bin from pine and wanted to see what Linseed oil
    finish would look.

  7. Thanks for watching. You’ll want to apply several coats, as it will soak
    into the wood.

  8. Ok I didn’t know. I will do thanks again for the tips
