Types of Wood Finishes Used for Woodturning
I use three different types of wood finishes for my turned work. The function of the piece determines which finish I use. I make pieces used for display and utility, thus the finish has to meet the needs of those purposes. Recently I have begun experimenting with paint to develop other decorative effects. Although, as a general rule, I do not use coloration (other than a limited amount of ebonizing) on my turned work.
