Topic tags/keywords: question cherry lathe finishing

A few weeks ago I saw a guy making custom pool sticks and he used leather on a section of it, applied beeswax and the lacquer. My thought was how can that be?? So, I tried it on a scrap I had and sure enough it gave the leather a nice shine and so far, no flakes or defect. Is it the leather that can handle both at the same time??

I personally wouldn’t on wood. Leather? Seems kinda strange.

He sanded, dyed, sanded, dyed, sprayed Master Quick Shine, sprayed water and stain shield, cleaned it with ragged dabbed in something from a yellow can, then sprayed with an unidentified yellow can that looked like Pledge.
