Reader's Choice - Top Woods to Turn
Walnut turns best at a lathe speed of 800-1,000 rpm, and requires sharp tools. Bowl turners know that walnut's pronounced end grain in the bottom of a bowl tears easily and produces a surface that can be difficult to sand. The best finish for walnut is a clear one. Several coats of Danish oil provide clarity. Turning by Mike O'Leary.
