    Dave, I recall you posted this before. You can post in that thread and it will bring it to the top of the classifieds instead of posting a new thread.

    I would suggest you wet sand with the finish you intend to use, diluted slightly with the appropriate thinner. For WOP, use mineral spirits and dilute it by about 25%. Wet sand beginning at 150,...

    As has been stated, a razor edge on a turning gouge will not last long and may not be achievable given the steels used in gouges. Since a cutting edge is produced by the intersection of two surfaces,...
