  8. haydenHD says:

    No I just use it as the finish.

  9. haydenHD says:

    I have but it’s been a long time. It does put a nice gloss on the wood.

  10. H4rdr1v3 says:

    do you ever use Steel wool to high gloss the wood?

  11. Mueiwark says:

    Lovely shine on the wood!

  12. haydenHD says:

    Yes, I sand the inside as well as the outside with my fingers. Be careful with small openings.



  13. haydenHD says:

    I was able to get them for work, but we no longer use the machine.



  14. Buzzsawman says:

    I lied I have another question…do you ever finish the inside of hollow vessles like this? If so…how would go about that

  15. Buzzsawman says:

    I have just been reviewing some of your videos and this one sort of grabbed my attention…I do have a question….where does one get some of those metal disks you used in the lid of this project.

  16. haydenHD says:

    Great idea maybe a slideshow.

    Really enjoy the videos. So when do we see a group pic of your accomplishments, they are great! Do you still have them all, if not where are their new homes.

    Keep them coming. Look forward to the new videos as they come.

    Hi Carl
    I have been enjoying your videos for several months now. Congrats on the 100th.  Keep them coming and thanks for sharing with us.

  22. Buzzsawman says:

    Yeah Carl. I use the black wet/dry sandpaper. I have seen it as high as 8000 grit I am assuming that is for sanding between coats on auto body paint.

  23. haydenHD says:

    I start at about 180 and go to 220 320 400 and finish with 600.
    Do you you wet-dry sand paper? The cloth back only goes to 600 grit.


  24. Buzzsawman says:

    how many grits of sandpaper to you use on your projects…I have gone as high as 2000 grit and then used a friction polish….makes for a real shiny piece of wood.

  25. haydenHD says:

    Glad to hear it enjoy!
