Default Keep It Simple Thread:Task Orientation

This thread is for ideas on keeping tasks simple. Everyday tasks from cooking to home improvement to automotive. Got a better way, then post it up. This thread could be seen as a cousin to the minimalist living thread where the goal is to un-clutter process.
Here is a simple solution to sharpening knives rather kitchen, occupational or hunting and outdoor to EDC, etc.

Boiled linseed oil is great for preserving and replenishing wood. This ideal for any tool with a wood handle. With tools like hammers, axes and shovels, the linseed oil will actually make the wood swell a little and provide a better fit on the hammer/axe/shovel head. When buying new tools with wood handles, sand the varnish off and apply boiled linseed oil. The varnish is what makes the wood dry out and splinter-crack, which will shorten the life of the handle as well as leather gloves. Discard rags with care, this stuff is highly flamable.
