Well Done Turnings
Issue: Issue 306

A motorized barbeque turning at about five rpm is ideal for finishing turning projects. I mount my turnings on homemade centers and apply a finish. As the piece rotates the finish levels out and dries, and even if a run occurs it eventually evens itself out. A bonus is that my lathe is free for my next project.
