Professional looking finishes for wood turners


When you are ready to proceed to the finishing of your work, here’s an infallible trick of the trade to obtain an impeccable luster. First, apply a light coat of sealant polish at low speed. Let dry between coats simply by turning your project at high speed. Apply at least more two coats, and then finish off with as many more as you like.

 

For a more durable finish, apply heat resistant carnauba wax. Complete by polishing the wood on your lathe while spinning at high speed, and shine with a specially designed turning polishing cloth.
