    I will be driving through that way on my way to Boston next Monday. Taking my little girl back to college after a weekend visit.

    Jerry-That is beautiful (especially after my user-grade version above lol!). I haven't done any wood scales in quite a while, as I've been playing around with horn, acrylic, and paua. But the next time I do, I need to comb back through the threads and take notes on your wood-finishing technique. That almost looks shiny enough to be CA, but haven't you been using something like Mike's Tru-Oil treatment? I love a deep luster like that, especially on highly-figured woods like cocobolo and the various rosewoods, bocote, etc.

    I may have to give away my tin of Formby's Tung Oil.

    I took a quick look at Formbyís tung oil. It looks like you can build a finish with it. Iíve been using waterlox for some things, recently brushes. Iíve been using 6-8 coats with a light sanding of 320 every couple of coats just to keep the finish consistent. After the pores have been filled I do one last light sanding, if your finish is flat and all pours are filled you should end up with a totally consistent looking sanding job. I apply one last coat, not heavy but not light either and let it set up for a few days then wet sand from 500-2k then you can use auto polish on a rag or better yet a buffer with a rag wheel just make sure you donít heat up the finish if using a machine. Just donít sand through your final coat, it may show up as a ring.

    Yeah, I have used Formby's off and on for years for various wood projects, and have achieved some beautiful finishes by doing multiple very light coats in a very dry environment (here in the Southeast, that sometimes means a dehumidifier), with a lot of rubbing and polishing to bring up the shine. But nothing even close to the finishes I see Mike and Jerry getting!

    But as "serious" wood finishing guys all like to say, Formby's is not truly pure "tung oil" per se (not that there's anything wrong with that), but more boiled linseed oil and various drying agents (somebody correct me if I'm wrong about that).

    Anyway, I've never been too proud to learn new techniques from those who got there ahead of me!

    Im prety sure those were done with CA. It was before i got into the Tru-oil. But i will have to check to be sure.
    I hadnt pulled that one out in a while. It does look pretty good. I amaze myself sometimes.
