I just found some beautiful buff colored (on sale) Bamboo from Classic Elite Yarns at my LYS. I thought the Fiber Trends Streaming Leaves Scarf would look nice in this.
The Traveller came unfinished:
And I have since rubbed in 3 coats of Danish Oil in a light Walnut:
(The finish doesn't look quite this dark in real life.)
The next step is to rub in and buff a few layers of Wax finish to give her a satin gloss and protect the wood. This has already taken 1 week to do, I think but the finished wheel will look great and is well worth the effort. Unfortunately I won't get her waxed and assembled until next week ~ out of town symphony for the next few days.
