Turning Archive 2007
>I just purchased a piece of lignum vitae and turned a finial. I sanded from 150 to 600 and it appeard totally finished....even had a beautiful satin luster. I then applied a coat of satin poly urethane gel, my normal finish for turnings, and as I wiped it off with a paper towel, the moist gel on the towel turned blue. Is this normal ? Also, is there a better alternative to the poly for this wood..ie danish/tung oil ?
