    Hi, Yes Maple and Sycamore are very different. They are both hard woods but have very different grain patterns.

  5. scarlattibeet says:

    You’re using maple here. For another project you said you were using sycamore. Is there a difference? I thought that what we Brits call sycamore is your maple.

    You can use salad bowl oil it is a little glossier than the wax.

    Take care,

    What grits of sandpaper do you use?


  9. caribourain1 says:

    Mr. Jacobson,
    After you use your sanding mixture of wax paste and linseed oil, what can a person use to make it glossy?

    This is one of my favorite projects you do.

  11. haydenHD says:

    I slow down when sanding, because I feel it does a better job.
    Yes, I am using a 3/8 inch bowl gouge.


  12. peaheadobrien says:

    1. why do you slow the lathe down to sand?
    2. what tool are you using to shape the lid and body? a 3/8 inch bowl gouge?

    Hayden – Great job and very nice quality video. What would you use if you wanted to put a texture on the dark acorn end, like a knurl? A chatter tool or a hand held knurling tool?
