Hey Burlkraft.... the highest grit I can seem to find is 600... can you tell me where to find this 2000 that you speak of????I use Renaissance too...Nuthin' better for figured wood, as you can see. :thumbsup:
In a pinch I also use pure bee's wax and my Makita heat gun on 3 and work it in while keeping it warm. I like it best on bare 2000 grit sanded maple. No need to over do it either. Small amounts rubbed in warm on warm wood. I usually put 5 or 6 thin coats in and buff each by hand.nline2long: nline2long: nline2long:
Darren, That table is great! I love the simplicity of the design and the figure in the wood is beautifull!I use this http://www.woodcraft.com/family.aspx?FamilyID=3235
At $24 for 7 OZ. it may seem pricey, but it lasts forever. Just a tiny dab (size of a small grape) will do a table top. Just keep putting it on and buffing it up. I hate to keep linking this picture in my threads, but that is all that is on it, Tung oil and Renaissance Wax. Smooth as glass. I use the same on walnut too, but figured woods especially, I want it to look like there is no heavy finish on the wood.
Both pictures are the same table, you can see how it works for figured wood. It is so clear it looks dfferent from any angle, the finish is not messing up the effect of the grain.
The second link to my gallery didn't seem to work, don't know if it is my end or what ?
