I’ve used it for a couple turning projects. In my experience, sanding it down to a pretty high grit (600 or so, maybe higher) will reduce its tendency to suck up finish, and leave you with a shinier surface.

If all else fails, epoxy might be a good bet too. It’ll give you a nice, hard finish over the softer redwood.
