Well I have got the beams, but no one seems to be able to advice me on what to do next, not what I expected.

Got the chance of some solid Acacia wood, its for indoors and will come direct from the sawmill, was thinking of a light sanding and then what? Wax, Stain, Varnish, they will be two uprights and a 3.7mt cross piece, as an entrance, so people will may brush against them, Thankyou.

hey alan,

Which spray did you use to protect the tools?

Just a bit of WD40, sprayed on then a gentle wipe off with kitchen roll, obviously when useing them you get your hands dirty but I didnt find them slippy. On the cast iron which was a French bread oven door, I coated it with a black paste and buffed it up, sorry dont know what you would call it in the Uk.

Hello although a new member, may I suggest soaking them in red wine vinegar, have done this very successfully with some badly rusted tools and on cast iron as well. Soak for as long as possible, a few days at least, then a light wire brush, I used a brass one, then a bit of spray to protect.
