I have just finished turning a large bowl 12.5" wide and 5.5" high after it was roughed out and was soaked in LDD for three days (I normally only soak for 24hrs).I am now ready for finishing but the wood hasn't dried yet, when you touch it while its spinning it just leaves a white film which soon disappears so its nearly imposssible to sand. The wall thickness is about 1/2" have turned a 1/4 from inside and out.
Should i now leave it to dry, soak in clean water and dry or just use a lot of sand paper ( clogging almost straigh away) and finish.
The finish i normally use is a shellac sander sealer 2 coats, then beeswax finish 5-6 coats
Hoping for some speedy replies as its just sitting by my lathe drying out
