    Celtic Knot Longwood

    African Rosewood with Maple Knot dressed up in a Titanium Gold Cigar.
    This blank was made by Rob (Krenzr) and was part of a blank swap at our 2nd Annual Western Canada Pen Turners Conference in June 2010.
    Thanks Rob, well done!

    Sanded to 400x, burnished with turned wood shavings, buffed with Ultrafine Steel Wool, wiped blank down with Acetone, filled pores with Med CA, turned down Med CA, sanded to 400x, buffed with Ultrafine Steel Wool, applied 6 coats of MINWAX Clear Gloss Polyurethane buffing with Ultrafine Steel Wool between the first 4 coats.
    No buffing or polishing required for the final finish.
