Thanks Dave and Aaron. I have about 8 more to go with these along with 20 plus cutting boards. I have this show on Saturday and a show that will run for 4 days (Friday and Saturday) the first two weeks in Dec. I hope to sell out at these shows. As for the finish I have been using General wood turners finish. It does built up for a nice finish. I put on 5 to 6 coats and buff using the beal buffing system.
You will need the relevant diameter of Forstner bits, and perhaps an extension if you make deep mills. I drill my mills on the lathe. Easier than clamping on the drill press and having to move the table as the depth progresses. If you want to drill on the lathe you will need a Jacobs chuck with relevant morse taper. Also available at the same places as the kits.
