Most wood turning pieces are going for a specific finished look. Learn the difference so that you can plan ahead and have the right supplies on hand when you need them.
I think enough of oil finishes, and Tung Oil in particular, to give it a separate article for discussion and comparison. I have used the stuff for years and I will share what I have learned.

Any of the commercial or home-brew varnishes and oils can be used over Deft. The wiping varnish that I prefer is a home-brew blend.
First I would recommend you use a varnish called Varathane.
This is a true glossy lacquer finish that I use on nearly all of my turnings.
