Canary wood, the last few pieces of wood turning lumber from Amazon. Trying to turn a plate is not easy and this was the first time I used a glue block, sanding sealer and lacquer finish. In both cases I was not happy. The glue block was a bit of a pain, gumming up the tool trying to cut through it. The sanding sealer was nice, but the lacquer was very fumy. Its one thing to circulate air, but the lingering smell was not a joy for me. I don’t think I will be using lacquer again, but I can’t say never.
