No more soap sales + being copied

I have discontinued soap sales, at least temporarily. I have had a lot of fun over 18 years making soap and meeting so many other interesting people. Thank you everyone .
Maybe I will get back to it again later, but meanwhile I will be making only for personal use and gifting..

detail of a table leg


This is a table that belonged to my fathers parents.
it was black
30 years ago i got some caustic soda/lye and cleaned it up and then applied a coat of matt Estapol.......as one did in those days !!
the black is still left in the grain.
i think i need to feed it a bit of wood food again
