Listener Questions


Sealing End Grain

I am new to woodworking/turning and lucked across a friend who had recently felled an ash tree.  I got one of the rounds (28" dia x 15" tall) and sectioned it with a chainsaw and slathered latex paint on the endgrain to slow the drying.

This weekend, after a month of drying, I noticed that some of the pieces are showing new cracks in the painted endgrain.  What did I do wrong, do you need to periodically reapply the latex paint? Can these pieces be salvaged?

I am new to wood turning and acquired some white ash from a friend. I turned a small bowl for my wife to put her rings in at night with carbide tools and even after sanding, the grain is still rough in some places.

Any suggestions? What is a good/simple finish that you would suggest?

As a follow-up to my previous email -- What do you put on top of the Howard Feed-N-Wax?  (I just watched Carl's "Back to Basics" #6 (End Table with Off-Center Post) video and after putting on the Feed-N-Wax, he's putting on some other "paste-wax looking" stuff.)
