    First Bowl off Mustard Monster

    Here is the first bowl I turned on the new PM 3520. It is Maple burl about 5 inches by 2.5 inches and wall thickness of 3/16". I finished it with 3 coats of Tung oil then Beall buffed it. When I brought it in to show LOML she said don't you have something bigger to turn you bought that lathe that can turn 20" and this is what you bring me!

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Very Nice Bowl Keith. My wife just saw the pic and read it and says "She had better be just teasing as it is beautiful".

    keith, when you apply tung oil, do you have to wait for each coat to dry completely before you apply next coat?nice bowl, I tell my wife all the time nice things come in small packages.(are you using pure tung oil, or something like formsbys? sorry, just trying to sort out my problems with finishing products, just love the way it all pops out with tung oil)

    Allen this is the first time I had ever used Tung Oil. Yes, according to the can you have to wait 24 hrs to apply additional coats. I do not believe it is pure tung oil I used Minwax Tung Oil.

    I do not know that I will use it again though. I normally use Watco Danish Oil on my Western Maple to make the grain pop and I think it looks better. It also smells better, the Tung oil stunk!

    Actualy the Minwax Tung oil finish is just a wipe on poly and contains little if any actual Tung Oil.
