    Redwood HF

    This was a cute piece of Redwood that has been sitting around for 5-6 years. 4x2.5, 3/16" wall. 6 coats of Formby's Tung oil finish and 5 of gloss WoP. Since it's so shiny and my camera and/or I stink...it was hard to get a good picture. One side is loaded with fissures, the other with very nice quilting. What's a good way to apply WoP? I've been using a paper towel off the lathe...ehhh . Given that I usually do blobby forms due to a lack of imagination, I liked this one .

    I like it. I really don't see anything to fix for future turnings.

    I do like it to Jim. Really nice form and for WOP finish I use a old t-shirt. Cut them up in strips and wipe it on off the lathe.

    Wow, nothing to critique from what I see. This is one of your best, bud. Super-looking wood, and the form is just right to my eyes.
