This kind of Work takes a long time .
Kathy Dipped & Soaked all the shakes 110 % as , She even made sure the Edges were done and the Bottoms got
Brushed Twice after the Dipping process .. 11- 12 Gallons approx as I lost Count . ( Due to the Extra Oils We added to the over all Mix )
Toque Oil , Linseed , Pentrol oil , and ( Lemon Oil & Danish Oil ) to Help it Saturate . .

Time well Invested as it will Last & Last & Last ..

Time Lines : I'm going to try Numbering - only - Place or Add Titles after they Up for Use .

Then there's the Back Up on Storage . ( Any Input ) ON Organizational or Storage ..

I Like to Keep the Large Ones in their Original Position etc. with out Flipping - Until I see a Quality Print ..

Haven't even located a Quality Printer - here n TN ?

I'm looking at - CoolPix P900 : anyone use one ?
