Recent Yew pieces like all but a couple of pieces in my Gallery since Nov. 2009 are just Cellulose Sanding sealer and either Carnauba or Microcrystalline Wax (mainly the latter) buffed with the Chestnuts Triple Mop buffing system.

Thanks Derek, like to say I'm experimenting with different shapes but to be honest they are what came out of some good looking stock but full of ring shakes and are what is left over after all the bits flew off.
Take up turning time out of proportion with their size though changing chucks and holding methods but at least it keeps up the turning practice. Hopefully the stuff I've sorted since lunch will have a better yield.

After a fresh coating of looking at this morning was not really happy with the lid profile on that last one so have put it on a slimming diet to reduce the bulk.
