Subject:
Cedar Oil on cedar wood

Brad Bittle
>Turned a nice natural edged cedar turning...decided wanted to retain the cedar aroma and soaked with cedar oil instead of danish. Couple days later, a white fungus or mold started appearing all over the vessel, including the turned and natural bark areas. Wiped the substance off daily for a few days. Decided to coat out with danish oil at this point, but the mold continues to appear after daily wipings. What to do? Thought of using mold remover like Tilex, but their instructions say do not use on wood. Please, what to do?
Thanks,
Brad in Knoxville
