Riser Rings for Longworth Chuck

Great for Plates Platters & Bowls With sharp edged rims.

The Longworth Chuck is a wonderful device. Our customers love its ease of use, speed of setup and its gentle non-marking grip on their beautiful vessels. They asked for a way to also use their Longworth Chuck when working with knife edged plates or bowls that flared out to a sharp edge. The steel washers at the base of the soft silicone buttons sometimes interfered with the sharp edge on the vessel.

Walnut Oil Finishing Wax

Walnut Oil Finishing Wax

Walnut Oil Paste Wax provides a smooth surface on which the wax can be deposited. The wax is applied to the piece after final sanding and is then buffed with a soft paper towel. The Walnut Oil Crystal wax relies on the solvating properties of walnut oil.

Walnut Oil Microcrystal Wax provides a translucent wax finish. In exchange for a slightly brighter shine, you get a slightly softer finish than with carnauba wax.

Cutting Board Wax is a Hard, Carnauba wax finish that is food-safe and made specifically for cutting boards.

High Build Friction Oil

Ron Browns High Build Friction polish is among the very best. This is a new version of the classic oil/shellac friction polish, replacing boiled linseed oil with walnut oil. Walnut oil does not cloud the figure of the wood or darken with age. The surface of the work piece should be finish sanded with all sand marks removed. For most work pieces, especially pepper mills, sanding through 1000 grit is the norm. It doesn't take that long with good quality sandpaper and a sanding lubricant like Ron Browns Walnut Finishing Oil (sold separately) to do the trick.

Ron Brown's Best Walnut Finishing Oil

Ron Browns Walnut Finishing Oil can be used in two ways: First, it can be used as an oil finish. Dip the sanded piece into Walnut Finishing Oil, drain off the excess and set the piece aside. The walnut oil will be drawn into the wood and with time, hardens to a durable, restored finish. Second, it can also be used as an aid in sanding. A few drops of Walnut Finishing Oil applied to the work as it is sanded will speed up the sanding process significantly
