WOOD TURNER'S FINISH

General Finishes Wood Turner's Finish is a water-oil urethane hybrid for use on wood turnings, bowls and other lathe-turned projects, now made with more than 50% RENEWABLE RESOURCES formulated from sustainable materials that decrease the carbon footprint. This water-based wood finish produces a slight amber tone and dries to recoat in minutes. Because of its unique chemistry, Wood Turner’s Finish is best used as a standalone product on raw wood or over GF water-based stain. 

 

 

Wood Turners Finish Application Steps:

 

  1. Stir topcoat to reincorporate solids that have settled to the bottom of the can before and throughout the application process.
  2. 3+ coats recommended. The number of coats will vary by application technique and personal preference.
  3. Apply with a synthetic bristle or foam brush, rag/towel or spray with HVLP airbrush. 
  4. If desired, thin with distilled water.
  5. For more open time, add General Finishes Extender.  Start with 5%, increase up to 15% by volume. 
  6. Finish sand between coats with a fine-grade (220-320) foam sanding pad, 400-grit sandpaper or gray non-woven pad to improve smoothness and adhesion.
  7. Remove dust with a vacuum, compressed air, an oil-free tack cloth or a water-dampened rag.
  8. Wood Turners Finish should not be tinted. 

 

Lathe
Apply on the lathe at 3000 rpm using a pad, bristle brush, and/or foam brush.

 

Buffing
Buffing can be done using wet/dry automotive sandpaper after the finish has cured. Use GF Finishing Wax as lubricant. Do NOT use water.

Warning: Do not use water-based products with Linseed Oils or Danish Oils.
