Can’t help with getting the shine – all I can think of is you need more coats. But I have to ask… how do you get a run when you are doing wipe-on poly? Sounds like your technique is a bit off as you should only be applying a super thin coat. For me at least, WOP is about the most fool-proof finish there is.

Yeah like I said I applied to heavy a coat, I had an area that just didn’t want to cover.. So much work for such a bad result..

Since you can still turn it, how about applying the finish while on the lathe? Maybe a friction polish will work. I’m not a turner, so sorry if this is off base.
