Thanks for the kind words.

The finish is a base coat of linseed oil, followed by 4 coats of Waterlox, each rubbed gently with steel wool. The final coat is power buffed with a white stainless steel buffing compound using a Beall bowl buff.

Les: You do awesome work i am very impress, I also looked at your chairs and they like you said they do
ROCK, they are such a beautiful piece of workmanship, I love all your work. By the way i was in the Army for a while. I was thinking about in the near future buying a Grizzly bench type lathe and a 14 inch bandsaw, i was wanting your opinon on it. Thanks for your posting.

Thanks very much for the accolades, Qmoney, I use a ONEWAY 1640 and I’ve not looked closely at the Grizzly, lathes. I visit the Grizzly store about once a month in Springfield, Mo which is about 45 minutes away and I’ll look at the a bit closer for you if you like.

Les you don’t have to go out of your way i was just wondering, with your vast experience and you see a lot of the grizzly tools you could tell me what you thought about it. I currently live in S.C. but i visit Springfield, Mo and went to the Pro Bass shop, it was nice. I had a friend that live in Carthridge, i think i am spelling it right. They have those precious moment statues, company their, i like it in Mo. Thanks for your help.
