    They are not perfect by any means and finnish not great but at least I made something. Need to get finer bristle brush or use a pad.

    I used white polish shellac and just a cheap normal paint brush. Not a good move.

    I watched some videos Ken posted and see that you use the lightest of touches.

    I did do some french polishing when I was a young lad. I remember what I done came out all right but how I done it I cannot remember.

    those winding sticks look great Mark.

    I usually apply my finish (mostly oil) with a old t-shirt or something similar.

    When this is dry i apply some furniture  wax  with 0000 steel wol,this makes the surface really smooth .

    I did use furniture polish wire wool and buffed up they feel great.

    I did try and flatten with wool but brush lines still showing.

    I like the sticks. Well done! I had some noses with shellack, too. That’s due to impatience 😉 A little light sanding can take care of that.

    I painted my first set of winding sticks (oak) with white and black acryl. Butt ugly, but the only finish I had ready at hand at the time. Your’s look really awesome in comparison. I think I might copy your design and make myself some new ones. It’s a nice little project.
