There are probably multiple ways to do that glass smooth finish on wood. I’ve always known it as being a piano finish… the kind of finish one would see on fine and expensive pianos. I’ve always liked the appearance and duplicating that...

Not much to say, except that I love the indiginous woods that are found in North Louisiana. I like the american red gum mostly (satin walnut). I especially like the spalted versions of the different species that are here in Louisiana like the red & white oak, beech, hickory, black walnut, tupelo, sycamore, cypress, honey locust (North American mahogany) red alder and a few more I can't remember at this time. My friend Dr. Ken Sanderlin that I get the material from is an affectionado of spalted wood an he has alot of it on his 125 acre tree farm. The wood is re-cycled dead and dying trees form his tree farm. It is quarter-sawn, naturally air dried and further kiln dried right on site. Doc is the sawer and owner. All of the info can be found on the web-site and where to get it.
I've been doing wood work for well over 20 years and got into this particular area about 10 years ago when I met Dr. Sanderlin who is my vet. He intrduced me to spalted wood and the rest is history.
