    Default Simple Beech Bowl

    Not posted much in the turning section for a while as I am building a toy train and also 5 money boxes. I had a piece of beech that I rough turned not so long ago from very wet wood with this piece i stuck it in the airing cupboard and it has misshaped a little and also the weight has stabilised. I turned the final shape and then finished it with a three wheel buffing kit from a company here in England called Chestnut products.

    Anyway it was sanded to 600grit then coated with sander sealer before doing the buffing, This is the first time I had used the buffing wheel system for polishing and am very pleased with the end result

    Sorry for late reply. Thank you very much this was just a bit of light turning between other bits like waiting for glue to dry and making 5 money boxes. And also to have a play with the new buffing system

    I only just spotted this one Derek. I like the look. The contrasting rim sets it off.

    The three wheel buffing system sounds interesting. I noticed that you said you coated it with sanding sealer, then buffed. No other finish?
    I assume that you used a shellac-based sanding sealer?
