    can saturate wooden haft in liquid (non-oil) compromise integrity?


    ADVERTISEMENT
    Hi all, I recently tried a homemade wood stain of coffee, teriyaki sauce and red wine vinegar that turned a little more into a bath. needless to say, parts of it became completely saturated for 1+ hours.

    Is the integrity and strength of the haft now lowered?

    thanks.

    I don't think the salt in the teriyaki did the wood much good but thankfully it was only in there for an hour so it probably didn't penetrate all that deep. Give it some love in the form of several coats of BLO cut 50:50 with mineral spirits.



    P.S. - have you tried that mixture on a Boston Butt?

    If you have problems it will be with a loose head.

    I love BBQ! Been known to smoke a butt pretty regular. Butt I am not real familiar with the term Boston Butt. Is that bone in?

    I'm sure it'll be fine once it gets dried out...
    Where in the world did you ever get the idea to put that on an axe handle?

    If you don't seal the taste in you will get hungry every time you use it!

    Yep, bone in. Upper part of the shoulder.

    Apologies to the OP for going off topic.
