    Beautiful wood, but

    I've used this stuff twice. Both times it was gorgeous turning blank. The onky issue I have with it is that it seems to not have been dried at all just wax coated. The first project turned out great, I sealed it right after turning. The second one I am still working on, I had to leave it over night as it was getting late, in the morning there were cracks all over the block. I'm hoping they will shrink up as it dries out,if not I will just fill them. I recommend this product, only if you have experience with wet turning.
