I continue to make content for virtual entertainment and education of our club here in Raleigh, NC (We are without a venue at least through the summer) While sharing the videos locally as well as on social media, several folks have reached out and asked for a basic session on finishing. I realize this is a risky topic because every turner has their "go to" finishing method but each of us share the same goal of achieving a finish that compliments and enhances our art piece. To that end, I decided to give it a go. Because it is intended for beginners and the focus is on finishing rather than turning, I used a simple form in the video. It is claro walnut about 12 inches in diameter.
I am still a novice with the video presentation process so I welcome your feedback on both content and presentation.
