I’ve used Shellawax paste and liquid as well as Mylands High Build Friction Polish. A bottle of Mylands is $20 and it lasts a long time. I usually do 3 to 4 coats on my turnings. If I need something a bit more durable, For the tool handles I’m made, Then I’ll apply polyurethane first on the lathe, like a friction polish, then after it dries, I brush it on to give it a final shine.
