Today I finish the Carpenter Workbench project by removing pencil marks and applying boiled linseed oil. Boiled linseed oil, especially mixed with beeswax, makes a very durable and long lasting finish for hard use workbenches. Stay tuned for more woodworking, tool restoration, and general homesteading videos

I usually just blast off the pencil markings with a quick hit of the palm sander.

You're right about the pencil lines I think. I found that holding the pencil farther away from the point, maytbe half way or so up, and making 3 or 4 light swipes will make a nice visible line that erases easily if necessary. Also good on you for the warning on combustibles on rags or paper towels and good solution. Also very nice bench. Isn't nice to have something so solid and useful for projects?
