Very informative and well documented process. I have 2 suggestions, cocobolo is easy to turn and finishes beautiful but many people have allergic reactions, poison ivy type reactions. I don’t turn it anymore do to this. I also use the Mylands finish but use the EEE polish 1st as a base coat. This makes the top coat even more glossy. Thanks for doing this series. Bob

Bob, Thanks for the great info. I have had a few people tell me about the reaction to cocobolo so I will mention it in a future video. I’m lucky enough to have not had a reaction so I use it all the time. Good to know on the Mylands finish as well. Thanks again.
