First of all, don’t drink linseed oil. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, check out this episode of the Build Show with Jordan Smith. In this episode, Jordan goes through the process of finishing steel with boiled linseed oil. Applying a linseed oil finish to hot rolled steel is tricky, but worth it- the look of the finish is perfect for architectural steel. Watch the video, then go and read through our story on trim finishing techniques.
Jordan is a home builder in Austin Texas. He currently works with Matt Risinger on “The Build Show” and leads the steel and carpentry crews for Risinger Homes. He and his wife, Veronica, have 4 kids and enjoy designing, building, and remodeling together as a family. When he is not busy building or filming, Jordan can be found sitting alone, outside of his house in his pickup, scrolling though Instagram, while his family waits for him to come in for dinner.
