Caring for an Old Spinning Wheel

I need to find how to care for an old raw wood spinning wheel. I belonged to my grandmother. It is almost 100 years old. The wood seems so dry or thirsty. I don't want to seal it but wondered about an oil for the wood.

Lemon oil from walmart is in order to feed that thirsty wood.....it's cheap and cost effective....just the answer....pour into a painters pan....and paint it on with a paint brush......then wipe it down with a soft cloth.........I have a hundred year old trunk.....I spray down good with W D 40......then paint with lemon oil...as it is brass bound......that lemon oil is goooooood stuff........

Scott's Liquid Gold would be a great product to generously apply, till it looks like you'd want it to. What a find, you have there, you should be proud!
