never heard of it before, but the bloke I buy my blanks from said to give it a go... it's lovely to turn and finishes beautifully!
Nice Bowl, what did you use for finish, I believe it can be quite open pored.roohster":24tr422y said:never heard of it before,
Hi roohster, I often use walnut oil. The cheapest I've found it is in a well stocked grocery store. It's the same as sold for "turning finish".roohster":3frp3dgf said:Thanks Dave, still adding to it at the moment....
but I googled it yesterday and it appeared huzzah!
Another question folks;
if I want to make the bowls "food safe", for fruit or whatever, what oil can I use as a finish?
I was going to use this on a babies rattle till i read somewhere to be carefull because some people are chronically alergic to nuts. I've used olive oil before, it works but apparently it breaks down after a while and can smell. There are a number of food safe / toy sofe oils available, I belive Terry from chesnut has a few - I must get round to checking out his Irish supplier and trying some of them.I often use walnut oil
