Liming Wax Surface Embellishments: Liming Wax and Sandblasting

By Curtis Turner
Round Rock, Texas

Liming wax has been used for hundreds of years to create striking effects on wood. The effects can range from a soft antiqued (pickled) finish to a bold high contrast appearance with significant visual impact. It can be used on unfinished wood or over a stained or painted surface. The white liming wax is rubbed onto the wood and then wiped off leaving wax lodged in the open pores of the wood. Liming wax is fantastic when used on ring porous woods like ash and oak.

Easy Wood Tools Parting Tool

Easy Wood Tools Parting Tool

The parting tool is one of the most useful turning tools, but it is not usually very interesting or innovative. Easy Wood Tool has broken that mold with their Easy Parting Tool. The Easy Wood Tools handle gives you a firm grim on the tool and the thick, heavy tool body will virtually eliminate chattering and vibration in most cuts.
