Default My technique for CA finish

Just a short video to show how I do this. Under six minutes and 10 coats.

Thanks for sharing. Just curious, have you ever tried applying the CA directly on your finger and then onto the blank?

I don't know about the OP experiences with CA but, have you ever had CA burns...?

Accidental CA exposure in the fingers (or any other part of the body) is bad enough, applying CA with your bare fingers, should not be done not I encourage anyone to go that way.

I have been using craft foam sheets for some time with good results.

Cheers
George

Fortunately I am not a drinker. That would be the only way something like that might happen. It would be stupid and painful and your fingers wouldn’t be good for much after that.

I use a folded paper towel. Kurt Hertzog had a good article, Bulletproof Pen Finishes, in the February, 2017 issue of American Woodturner magazine.
