WB: C-street and Mase and Sweetwater and all sorts of chill places around WB. Its rad.
I just finished my first alaia. I used a mixture of one part boiled linseed oil and two parts mineral spirits. It seems pretty waterproof and didn't take that long to soak into the wood. It took 5 coats initially and will need to be re-sealed on a regular basis. I wouldn't use plain linseed oil, it's too thick and won't soak in.
