In Response To: Re: "Hand Rubbed Finish" (Charlie)

Charlie I don't think that it makes a great deal of difference what exact mix you use for the turps. I use 1 part turps and 3 parts oil more or less. I do not top coat with anything, but shellac should work well if you let the sticks dry at least a month before coating. If you are going to use it on sticks you might want to consider only one or two coats of oil to "pop" the grain and then use shellac for a surface coat, 5-6 coats of shellac polished will really give them a nice glow.
