It's global warming.  It's killing all the plywood trees.   :icon_biggrin:

I feel obligated to mention "hemp plywood" now.  It's gonna save the world!  (until the meteor)

Supposed to be stronger than wood. 

Much quicker turn around on the growth compared to trees too. 

Plus birds love the hemp seeds.  Pot in every chicken is my apropos political slogan of the day!

Boiled linseed oil. Then dark wax.

That's the traditional finish for Lee-Enfield rifles, which many call a "BLO-job". The trick is rubbing your wood with oil until it gets hot.  ;D

Once a day for a week, once a week for a month, once a month for a year, once a year forever.

I almost made a "this is my rifle, this is my gun" joke, but I couldn't come up with it.

Should I ask my doctor if "linseed oil might be right for me" ?

Speaking of Lee-Enfield rifles...
I was in Navy Junior ROTC in High School. We used to be able to use the indoor .22 rifle range at the National Guard Armory... Until this dumb ass kid brought in his .303 and shot a hole through the backstop.  ;D
