Talking Well, I made a mess...

Picked up a nice, but plain looking walnut blank from fleabay and never imagined this would be inside--besides all them shavings, I mean!

Sanded to 400 and finished with OB's Shine Juice per Cap'n Eddy's youtube video.

Holy crap that gorgeous! Just, wow, that is a fantastically figured piece of wood, and it made a fantastic bowl.

So, what ebay seller did you get the blank from. Im asking for a friend >.>

Nothing special. It is 1 part denatured alcohol, 1 part boiled linseed oil, and one part dewaxed shellac. You can see Cap'n Eddy's video on it here:

Very nice. Can't wait to see the finished product.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

I ran out of time last night (just before the misses went to work) and plan on finishing it tonight. Sanded up very easily. I need to build a photo light booth so I can get better pics when stuff is finished. I think I will do that this weekend. Got a buttload of stuff to upload to my site's gallery before the craft fair in november.

You can see below what the blank looked like before I started on it.

That may be one of the most boring blanks I've looked at. Kinda shocking what it turned out to be...

Thanks! Hope to have pics tonight of the other side. The wood had a bit of time to rest since last night and looks like it did not move much. Was definitely green: my glove got a bit moist while turning.

Got the interior turned. There was a bit of wood movement, which I was expecting. That was one reason I did not turn the inside last night. Thankfully, my lathe has reverse as doing the undercut rim without a hooked hollowing type tool would have been next to impossible.

Enjoy!

I picked up the supplies to make shine juice. I will let you guys know how it works out. If anyone was wondering it cost about $32 to make 3 quarters of shine juice.

Well, I made a mess...-image-2651902703.jpg

Awesome. I mix up a 1 liter bottle of the stuff. Just remember to shake frequently as the three components do not actually mix but are rather emulsified and separate out quickly. Oh, and the alcohol will evaporate rather quickly from the bottle, so a good idea is to mark the level in your bottle for next time so you know how much alcohol to replace. Learned that one the hard way.

I actually ordered 12 one oz squeeze bottles. I was planning on storing this and other oil finishes in them. You can get them bigger up to 32 oz, but I got the smaller ones hoping I could use it up before the finish spoils. Well, I made a mess...-image-2263571613.jpg

Trying to locate something like those here. A couple of guys I follow on youtube use the ketchup or mustard bottles like you see at diners.

I ordered those from Amazon. I paid $11 for a 12 pack with free shipping.
