How to Make and Apply your own Friction Polish - Woodturning- Oak Bowl- DIY
By: Stelios The Greek
October 08, 2017 · 1,346 views

This video is my demonstration on how to turn a small oak bowl and finish it with a high gloss friction polish. Friction polish creates a gorgeous glass like finish on many different wood turning and wood working surfaces. It is easy to make and store in your shop. To make your own friction polish you will need to mix equal parts: Denatured Alcohol: http://amzn.to/2gls00e Boiled Linseed Oil: http://amzn.to/2wFVwUt Clear Shellac: http://amzn.to/2gjrmQG Mix and then apply friction polish using a towel. Store the mixture in a clear container and mark the fill line before storage. Alcohol evaporates quickly. By marking the fill line on your bottle, you can easily gauge how much alcohol has evaporated during storage. You can then add in the appropriate amount of alcohol to maintain the proper ratio. This is a great DIY project for any beginner or pro woodturner.

Wood turning Shine on a Dime by Al Furtado
By: Rebel Turner
February 05, 2017 · 6,341 views

Shine on a dime, I show the luster you can achieve on your wood turning that is almost full proof and not break your wallet. The lathe is a tool that you can spend a lot of money on accessories but in my channel you will find that you can achieve your goals with the most basic tools. In this video I also show that you can turn the whole thing with just a roughing gouge (outside only) Inside hollowing will need a bowl gouge and a shop made hollowing tool.

I shortened this video because of the annoying Whining noise I was getting off my VFD before I had adjusted the parameters that silenced It. Please excuse the WHINING NOISE. It has been fixed for future video enjoyment. I used this test and focused on my favorite finish OB shine juice. The results speak for themselves. Like/share

Philippe's Shine juice recipe.
By: LivingArtsCo
September 01, 2016 · 706 views

10% blo, 40% denatured alcohol, 50% shellac. This will built a finish quicker than the OB Shine juice, more durable. The problem I had with Capt Eddie's OB juice was that often a film of blo would remain on the surface fooling me with nice Shine that would disappear over time. My recipe ensures that the Shine you see will last. Proven and tested. Thanks to Carl Jacobson, Capt Eddie and so many others for their insights. Time for me to share as well. Try this juice and please post comments on your results.

How to use friction polish, and how not to use friction polish. What lathe speed is best for applying friction polish? Should it be put on heavily or lightly? Does fine sanding make a difference when using friction polish? Should friction polish be applied while the lathe is running or stopped? Can it be applied during a zombie attack?

Woodturning Poll Results - Friction Polish

The results of my woodturning poll on friction polish are in! Here are a few links relevant to friction polish: A PDF on using friction polish, particularly Shellawax: http://bit.ly/1SPRzRw Cap'n Eddie's video on OB Shine Juice: http://bit.ly/1QAsV9y A link to my playlist of YouTube videos about friction polishing: http://bit.ly/1O8Snld An additional note about boiled linseed oil: After posting the video, one turner cautioned me that almost all boiled linseed oil products have metallic additives to enhance drying. It is, however, still considered food safe. After wandering the Internet for a while, I found that pure boiled linseed oil (no additives) is rather scarce. There is one product (Tried and True Danish Oil) which is polymerized and has no additives, according to the manufacturer. Woodcraft (online) carries this.

How to mix OB's Shine Juice
By: Braxton Wirthlin
January 03, 2015 · 5,411 views

O.b.'s shine juice 1 part boiled linseed oil 1 part denatured alcohol 1 part Zinsser's Bulls Eye Clear Shellack Mix well and store in a bell/mason jar. As you can see in the video, I used a very scientific method of determining that the parts I mixed were exactly equal. Not many people have access to the specific measuring device I used (a spray paint cap), but I'm sure you'll be able to find something just as accurate. The first time I mixed up shine juice and used it I became a huge fan. This finish is very easy to apply, both on the lathe and as a wipe on finish. I'll post an applicatio
