The Lineberry Cart: A Piece of Americana is Finished by Waterlox

A true piece of Americana, the Lineberry factory cart is considered an authentic antique in most circles. The carts, originally manufactured by the Lineberry Foundry and Machine Company in the early 1900’s in North Carolina, were widely used in factories.

Often called railroad carts, Lineberry carts were originally used in railroad depots for transporting trunks, and were later used in furniture factories for moving large pieces from one specialist artisan to the next. Waterlox customer Steve K. decided to rebuild and restore a Lineberry factory cart, using Waterlox to complete the finishing. To read the entire story, click here!
According the Steve, the finished product is incredible - as you can see from the photos!
“Most of what I did was all original,” he said. “The wood is all new white oak finished with 5 coats of Waterlox Original Sealer/Finish.” The cart was rebuilt and finished in central Texas where Steve enjoys working with Waterlox as part of his woodworking projects!

Waterlox Continues "Making Music" With Fellow Guitar Makers

There are many applications for the use of Waterlox finishes, from wood floors and countertops to furniture and bathroom and kitchen built-in areas like cabinets and shelves to bowls, boats and more. But some applications seem to bring more music to our ears than others, literally.
Dean G. is an experienced musician and guitar maker who has been creating guitars by hand for years. He recently experienced the effect Waterlox can have on a guitar when he used the product to finish a few instruments recently.
"I am proud to say I was able to use a sprayer to apply your Waterlox finish on one of my guitar necks and this finish is superb in all aspects," he said. "Waterlox Original Sealer/Finish layers so nicely and it flattens and levels even better. I will continue using your product as a part of my finishing mix on my necks ... Waterlox is amazing, Thank you!"
For the use of his guitar necks, Dean finished them with Waterlox Original Sealer/Finish and was nice enough to provide us with some beautiful sample images, click here to view!
