I bought an old Craftsman Tube-bed lathe a couple years ago.
It had some wood from Woodcraft included in the deal.
Finally dug around and made this dresser bowl.
The wood was VERY dry so after I rough-turned it I soaked it in a ziploc bag with boiled linseed oil.
Why BLO? Because that’s what I’ve got.
I waited till the BLO soaked in and cured, then did the final turning.
Final finish was polishing on the Beall system.
Although the wood polished as smooth as any other, the linseed oil seems to shine less that the 2 pound shellac I normally use.
