Re: Care for Wood

#133585

Much depends on the kind of wood it is carved from. Oak will absorb much less than pine however a more dense wood, ebony or mahogany would absorb waxes, etc at a much slower rate. I have another question however about leather. I have a pair of Spurs with leather straps. They have a white subsrance (salt?)that has crystallized on the surface of the lether. I am fairly certain it is salt because of the obvious usage of the spurs in the past, (sweat from the horse?) any Ideas ? Ken Radford Museum of Idaho
