An absolutely brilliant demonstration on the importance of finishing. Martin toook us from the basics of side and end grain and the different properties and problems with various changes in grain orientation throughout the contours of a shape. Not a turning demo but the foundation required to advance our knowledge through his amazing finishing process covering waxes, sealers and oils and their proper uses up to his system to achieve a mirror finish on a laquered bowl. Almost 4 hours tuition, information and Martins experience gained over the years all condensed into an indepth and informative demonstration. There was so much information, tips and techniques that I had to watch the recording later and added another two pages of notes that I missed during the live session..Just a truly excellent demonstration, I learned so much. Thank you Martin.
