- Round down meranti with a 3/4" gouge and a lathe speed no faster than 1,000 rpm to reduce chipping the wood.
- The open grain of meranti tends to collect finishing material if you apply it while the wood is spinning. The result is a wrinkled surface. You'll have better luck turning off the lathe to finish.
