    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?

    Pat,
    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!

    You guys kill me,

    Thanks I needed a good laugh

    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!
