I will finish it with natural (no color) Danish Oil, after I've put 1/8" notches for brass or copper wire wraps at 1-foot and 2-feet from the base. Between the wire wraps I'll place matching wood screws at 1-inch intervals. That will be for outcrop measurements.
I may give one to a student organization to auction off to old geezers at one of their fund raisers.
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that my three favorite geological societies are sending me lapel pins to embed. The Geological Society of America (GSA), the Society of Economic Paleontologists and Mineralogists (SEPM), and the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), are sending pins.
I have one just as Minerox ships, as pictured on their website. That's the giveaway, when finished. I talked them into sending just the hammer head, and the one you see here has a hickory handle from the hardware store.
