Murphy's Oil Soap is WONDERFUL stuff! Ginnie already gave the way it should be used...just make sure to rub it dry, so that no water is standing anywhere on the wood.
I use Homer's Furniture Restorer. It's great stuff, just keep in mind that it's basically a stripper with stain in it...so it goes on, and comes right back off! Don't let it sit "wet" for long periods of time... and then finish with Homer's Beeswax with Orange Oil...give it a generous coat, and walk away...wait

Start with at least 32 strips (2 1/2" wide) x WOF.
Sew 4 strips together, side by side. Iron all seams in the same direction. Cut the left side to where you have a clean edge to work off of. From that edge cut the strip set into 8" segments. Thie should yeild 5 segments. You will need two segments to make 1 block. Do this with all strip sets.
Pick out 2 segments. Fit them together, 1 on top of the other, with the middle seams lined up. This next step works
