A few days ago I asked for some assistance with a buffing issue on a hollow turned piece I did. This is the finished product. My thanks to all who responded. I had wiped on 2 liberal coats of DIY wipe on poly and let it set for several days. I lightly hand sanded (off the lathe) with 600G. re chucked and gave it a slow speed buff with the 0000 steel wool. I gave it a medium speed buff with the brown paper (grocery bag). Not sure if that did any thing. I applied a light coat of Min Wax by hand and let it set for 5 min then a high speed polish. there she be. Thanks again gents.

That is real nice Mark, you should be pleased with the shine you achieved. Like you I could never see much from using brown paper bags but thought I would pass it on. Very delicate stand. You are getting good at these hollow forms.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

That is fine work in all aspects of the word fine, never heard of the brown paper bag treatment, you learn something everyday but I guess not everything is what it is cracked up to be but always worth a try.
