With the General Finishes product I didn’t use a sealer … just applied direct to bare wood.

When I do use sealer, I generally use a 50/50 mix of Deft lacquer sealer and lacquer thinner.

Great looking piece, how is chestnut to turn?

This piece was a bear … it was green (which you would think would make it easy to turn) and stringy. I rough turned it, put it a bag of shavings, and let it dry for about 6 weeks.

This piece was from a log we cut up at a club meeting in May, and other guys who have turned it had the same reaction. I have another blank that was sealed and is sitting in my storage room waiting for its turn (pun intended) on the lathe.
