Hi folks

Having recently invested in my first ever bandsaw I'm now able to turn chunks of wood into turning blanks.

What do you lot use as end grain sealer? How do you apply it, etc? I hear a lot of folk say they use cheap PVA. Anyone got experience of this method?

Any advice welcome.

Cheers

Jamie
 
For the bulk of my sealing on cut blanks I use hot wax (scrap and cheap candles etc.)

For logs in store I use Hot wax if I've plenty to hand and they are manageable to dip in molten wax, if no wax or too difficult to dip then any old paint, matt/ gloss/ emulsion whatever, good way to use up all those dregs left in old paint tins, can even use the colours to identify batches.

I have some Cherry a friend sealed with a blush pink paint, in 2007 I think, whilst awaiting delivery to me that is still obvious as 'Aylesbury Cherry' as we dubbed it when it comes to light whilst sorting through the store.
