I picked up some 4F pumice and some rottenstone… I sanded to 400, then used the pumice. I put some of the paraffin oil on a rag, and sprinkled on the pumice. Needless to say, I was quite surprised when the white powder turned ashy, but I cranked up the speed on the lathe and went at it. In short order, the surface was gleaming!
“I can’t wait to try out the rottenstone!” Or so I thought…
it seems to have gotten into the ?pores? of the wood.
I’ve gone back down the grit ladder at this point. The pictures at the above link are after I hit it with some 220. So far, there’s been no change to the stain in the pores.
