Hi buddies, I haven’t posted projects in a while, but I made this one for a guy I work with that retired last Friday. This summer we had hundreds of ash trees blow over in a wind storm, I collected a ton of it for turning. I dyed it with Rit clothing dye the added my finish and lined it. You guys can also check me out on Instagram, awesometurner1970, thanks

Could you describe the “liming” process a bit? I know this method of finishing is/was commonly used in scandinavia for flooring, but havent really seen it for fine-woodwork.

Did you raise the grain first?
Did you wax, then oil, then buff?

The finished product is really purdy.

What I did was sand to 320, spray dye with my airbrush and wet sand the first couple of wet coats then spray again. After it drys it spray sanding sealer and then I wipe on Briwax Liming wax, after 5 minutes I turn on the lathe and wipe off the excess, it couldn’t be easier, I mean it a difficult process that only I can do, LOL. I hope you guys like it, it’s just like the one Jeff from the Walnut Log does.

never thought of dying with anything other than WOOD dye of some sort.
Good Job

RIT clothing dye can be used for all kinds of fun stuff. I sometimes use it to tint epoxy.

then I wipe on Briwax Liming wax

- Jacksdad

So thats a one-step finish product, more or less. Old-school way was to raise the grain with water, maybe use a brass wire brush to get some texture, sanding, then the liming, then wax, then oil, then buff. This was for wood floors, of course.

Your way, that only you can do, sounds alot easier.
