Re: Draw Knife Handles - Handle finish...

Forgot to mention the finish...

After first trying ~18 year old ShellacWax friction polish, which failed to dry (I wonder why?) I made up fresh friction polish. From a recipe on the web: two parts of freshly mixed, dewaxed 1.5 pound cut shellac to one part commercial "boiled" linseed oil. Applied with a cloth while the work is spun on the lathe. Three or four coats total.
