My First Finial Star
This is my first attempt at a Finial Star after watching Cindy Drozda's DVD once. After I was done I went back and watched it again. If I had it to do over again I would make the lid flatter and not quite as big around. Anyway it is cherry and is finished with that new General Finishes Woodturners Finish. Overall I like the finish pretty well. It does raise the grain so the piece needs sanding after the first application. I used 400 grit. The next 3 coats I sanded with 600 grit. The last coat I used 0000 steel wool. Then applied some Ren Wax. I applied it with a old T-shirt and just a small piece to wipe it on. The first couple of coats soak in pretty well. 5 1/2" wide and 6" tall.
