Wow, that is awesome. Ironically, Mr. TT found a video on using CA alone yesterday and started using this method prior to me reading your post. Scary...we must all be on the same wave-length.

Thank you for the advice and for sharing a pic of your work. It's great.

Do you remember the link (or search keywords) to this video? I'd love to take a look at it too.

Thanks

I have also gone to using thin CA for finishing on most woods.

See I was exactly the opposite.... i was ready to pull my hair out and do away with CA, then I did the CA/BLO method and had instant better results. I started with thin, but now use only thick, and save the thin for filling cracks and voids.

That just goes to show you that there is literally 30 different ways to apply a CA finish and they are all correct, you just need to find the one that suits you!

CA finish video

Here is the video requested by Duncan. It is by Capn Eddie. Some of you have probably heard of him. He's got a funny sense of humor...some will like him, others not; stay with him through the video; he gives all kinds of good info. and helpful hints. Enjoy.
