Queen made from cocobolo. Finished with HUT EEE wax. I’m not real happy with the hut wax, but it’s the only thing I have for larger turnings. Suggestions for alternative finishes welcome!

Looks good to me.
Now for the king and the rest of the pieces.

A few drops of Boiled lindseed oil on a rag then drop some CA glue on top of that and spit it on. The odor will knock you on your butt…..but the finish is shiney and durable.

Ohwoodeye, thanks for the suggestion. I already use CA on my pens, but I don’t know how to apply it to this piece.

Have your say...
