Bar soap works good too Jim. I hadn't thought of using Chapstick.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I keep a wax toilet ring in the shop. This product is made from plant oils and petroleum. It is excellent for screws and lubing rubbing wood surfaces. It is also great on work surfaces. When making plywood jigs, tabletops, router fences etc it is a great finish. Rub the wax on to the surface. melt it in using heat gun or hair dryer. work several coats in if you want. I junk my tops up with glue, epoxy, paint whatever. To clean them if a good scrape doesn't work use the heat gun warm it up and wipe it off. Then I renew it. Use it on cauls for glue ups

Learning is an exciting adventure

Yep. I keep a wax ring in the garage, too. The thing is that I'm a klutz and usually get it on my hands, and also it's always on the other side where I have to walk to it. So I'm going to give the chap stick a try.

It seems I never finish what I

That's not a big deal Jim unless it's a used wax ring.

I tinker on one of my lathes quite a bit when I want the instant gratification of a piece coming together quickly. This requires applying finishes while the lathe is turning and means holding rags with stain or finish. Too, sometimes I need to apply just a little stain and finish on other projects. In both events, I have to choose between donning a disposable glove or settling for stained or finished fingers.

Generally, I can used the disposable's a few times, if I peel them off carefully. Regardless, I end up fighting with gloves a lot, and throwing away a lot of disposable gloves. To avoid waste and make using gloves easy, I've bought good rubber or other heavy duty gloves and cut off all but the part my hand goes into. They are a little over sized, so they're easy to put on an pull off. As such, they get used a lot, allowing me to avoid waste and messy hands or fingers.

The reason I have what you want is, I never lent it out before.

Scraps are a myth.

What's wrong with using a used wax ring ??
It's the ultimate recycling sacrifice 😇😇😇 ....

Just save them for your friends. They don't need to know the details.

Harbor has 50 packs of 7 mil nitrille gloves for about $10 bucks. Last far longer than the thin ones, easier to put on and remove. But they're still flexible anough so you can work finish into corners and tight areas. The light weight gloves ofte get tears in the finger tips that leak finish, paint, etc all over my fingers. The 7 mil have never had that problem.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
