    WARNING - Do not attempt to apply the Stinson...

    finish with the lathe on . With everyone else seeming to pick up Travis' technique so easily with such exceptional results, I figured I'd give it a try when I got home. Well, it's not as easy as it looks. I dove right in to the shop after work and here's the results/aftermath. Good thing the trusty beagle was there to pull me to safety.... (I'm terrified to think what will happen when I try to buff it).

    Maybe I'll give George or Bonnie's version a try later, after I recover from the horror of this experience.

    The look on the dogs face is priceless. Sorta of a "What were you thinking...." kind of look.

    Does SWMBO know that you used an entire roll of "secret ingredients" to attempt that finish?

    I'm a newbie and have never attempted the Stinson finish but I think there is a steep learning curve. Don't give up yet!

    I can only imagine what it's going to be like closer to the holidays when the colored, umm...Stinson finish materials...hit the streets...

    The most expensive tool is the one you buy "cheaply" and often...

    Thumbs up Have you checked

    Are you picking up any alien life form radio waves from your lathe yet? I am interested to know what style and type of music they listen to - that is a price less picture- no doubt!
