An All Natural Hemp Oil Restoration- With Daddy Vans
I have been wanting to restore this old barnwood tool box for quite some time now, and when Daddy Vans sent me this big ol bottle of Hemp Oil I must say I was more than ecstatic!
They also sent their new orange oil cleaner, but that is for another post, I just couldn’t use it on this piece I want to try that out on a painted piece, but that’s another post altogether!

Hubby actually found this beauty in the dumpster, can you believe it? Looks to me to be made from an old charred wood. In my mind, perhaps made as a keepsake from the remnants of salvaged wood from a barn fire. Its definitely old, so bone dry and crusty with old dirt.
Prep and Process Work
Cleaned it up with an old wire brush to get rid of some surface rust, and caked on dirt. Gave it a good vacuum and brush, and applied the hemp oil with a natural bristle stain brush to get in all the nooks and crannies.
The toolbox after soaking up the entire 16 oz bottle of Hemp Oil inside and out. Wow that wood sure was thirsty after years of neglect squirreled away in some old warehouse. No excess needed to be wiped off this parched baby, it probably could have drank up even more.
So What Can I Use This Box For Anyway?
This toolbox is pretty large and I have no idea what it may have been used for in the past because of its odd shape, I originally planned on using it for tools in my shop, but its so big I have no room in there right now, so here’s what I came up with……
This Piece Was So Thirsty…. Let’s give it a permanent drink
It’s just perfect for stashing my hootch! I decided since it has a nice place for a padlock, and its a perfect shape for storing bottles…. looks just right for locking up the liquor. Yeah my eldest just turned 12 kinda to young to worry yet, but better safe than sorry I always say. What the heck would you use it for?
A little Product Info
