Keven it is CA/BLO finish on the wood, photographed outside to capture the sheen. Plenty of info re CA/BLO finishing in the library even some videos to watch.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments!:D

Loving that finish! You must make a video of how you do it for the library! Is that buffed, or just plastic polish and ren?

Phil, after I finished with the CA and cut it back with MM this one got one coat of Ren Wax whilst on the lathe.[8D]:D

Bill I get my Churchills from Bear Tooth Woods.;):D

Thanks everyone who replied, I really appreciate the comments!:D

Where did you get the Cocobolo from? Its quite dark compared to the block I got form Craft-Supplies? That was more red and orange!
