Woodturning: I Think I Need A Bigger Lathe! 😧

Adamsen Woodcraft
Thank you so much to all of you, and thank to all my new subscribers! This is my 17th video project, and it was quite a doozy. The yellow birch log had been harvested about a year and a half ago, but in spite of scoring the bark to prevent rot damage, the wood was very punky an almost impossible to finish. I fully expect it to check and crack, given the pith inclusion, but this piece is meant to be rustic. Between finishing the piece and taking the video montage at the end, I let the base soak in mineral oil for about 3 days until I noticed that the piece no longer floated to the surface of the oil. I did so because I noticed some dry spots on the finish where the wood was soaking up the oils and wax quickly. Once this piece settles out, I will apply an final coat of wax to help seal the piece and protect the finish. I hope you enjoyed this process! Thanks for stopping by!
