Thanks Dick, I'll have to order me a kit or two after I recoup from the Christmas rush.

Again thanks and it looks great!

It has 10 coats of Walnut oil/CA and then buffed on the Beale wheels.

Novice here. Are you saying Walnut oil and cyanoacrylate mixed? I've enver heard of that. Please explain.

Very nice piece. I've never turned one of those but would like to soon. The Kingwood looks nice on there.

I use Walnut oil rather than BLO because it is safer and it doesn't darken the wood. No time in between coats, as soon as it sets another coat goes on.
Here is a great tutorial on CA finishing and is the method that I use other than substituting walnut oil.

That's very interesting Whaler, please tell us more. How much CA do you put into the oil? How do you mix it? How do you apply it? Why is walnut less dangerous than BLO? Is BLO dangerous? I'm lost .

I know, I know, too many questions. But how are we supposed to learn this stuff without questions?

Thanks.

Edit: Oops - I just watched your video clip for you application technique. Very nice. I have a very slow internet connection here in the rural farmland of Indiana so I'm hesitant to view many videos.

BLO is known for its spontaneous combustion characteristics. So I would rather not have it in the shop.
