I turned a set of legs for yet another joint stool, this time out of some Mahogany like stuff, very open grain (three board glue ups for a project abandoned years ago). It didn’t agree with my lack of turning skills, so I used files a lot. Either way, the surface finish very chewed up so I went through the grits (80 to 220) to get a nice smooth dull finish. Burnished that with handfuls of shavings, which looked nice. Then I tried burnishing with oak sticks (cut offs from making pegs with the draw knife). Oh my. The wood looks almost lacquered. Note that this is raw wood, no finish.
