ut Finishes,

Chestnut are one of the leading brands for woodturning and woodworking finishes. I regularly use them myself in the workshop and so have practical knowledge of how best to use them to get the best from them.  All Chestnut finishes are supplied in 500ml cans unless otherwise stated.

The range of Chestnut Products currently in stock

Treatex Ultra 200ml bottlesTreatex Ultra Hardwax Oil 8.00
A natural mix of oils and waxes which produces a beautiful satin finish on all woods, although particularly excels on Oak and Walnut. Easy to apply and incredibly hard wearing. My current favourite finish. 200ml bottle.

Chestnut Hard Wax Oil
Chestnut Hard Wax Oil
A relatively new product from Chestnut which combines oils and waxes to leave a very hard wearing clear gloss finish. This is a high build finish so the more coats you apply the more glossy the finish will be, 2 or 3 coats give a satin sheen, 4 or 5 coats for a more glossy look. Easy to apply, just wipe on and off again with a paper towel. Can be thinned with white spirit if needed

Chestnut Finishing OilFinishing Oil - 9.50

This excellent Oil is a popular choice. The Oil soaks into the wood, feeding, nourishing and protecting the timber from inside and because it is not a surface finish, it can't be scratched or chipped like a varnish. I use 3 or 4 coats and finish with WoodWax 22 to get a beautiful rich glow. All applied with a NyWeb Pad to work the finishes into the wood and gently smooth the surface

Lemon OilLemon Oil - 9.50

Lemon oil is made with lemon grass oil, giving it it's distinctive citrus aroma. Like the Finishing oil (above) it offers a water resistant finish and has all of the advantages of an oil finish. Unlike the Finishing oil, Lemon oil offers a matt finish to your work

Chestnut Food Safe FinishFood Safe Finish - 9.00

Used on all items designed to come into contact with food such as chopping boards and spatulas. 2 or 3 coats liberally applied and wiped off with a clean cloth leaves a protective, satin finish for your kitchenware  

Chestnut WoodWax 22WoodWax 22 (Clear) - 9.00
Best applied with a NyWeb Pad, (I keep a small piece in the tin at all times) and is the perfect finishing touch to oil, lacquer or sanding sealer finishes. Supplied in a 450ml tin

Microcrysalline WaxMicrocrystalline Wax - 10.00
Another relatively new finish from Chestnut. This is a paste wax which uses a Microcrystalline formula to achieve a hard wearing and water repellent finish. Because of the higher melting point of this type of wax, it is ideal for items that will be handled a lot. Supplied in a 225ml tin, a little goes a long way!  

Chestnut Melamine LacquerMelamine Lacquer - 10.50

The best finish to achieve a quick and easy but hard wearing gloss finish on small items such as fruit and pens. I use thinned slightly with Cellulose Thinners and applied with a piece of paper towel. I use several coats, rubbed down in-between with a NyWeb Pad and finished with WoodWax 22 or Microcrystalline Wax, again applied with a NyWeb Pad

Cellulose Sanding SealerCellulose Sanding Sealer - 9.50

A great base for sealing timber before applying finishes such as lacquer or paint. Can also be used as a finish in its own right or with wax, leaving a slightly more matt surface than Melamine Lacquer. Best applied in the same way as Melamine Lacquer

Chestnut Cellulose ThinnersCellulose Thinners - 8.50

Used to thin Melamine Lacquer and Sanding Sealer. (I find up to a maximum 30% thinners is best) A pure Cellulose product without any recycled materials or harmful petroleum solvents such as Toluene or Xylene

Ebonising LacquerEbonising Lacquer - 7.00

A simple to use Aerosol Lacquer which gives a beautiful black finish for feature areas on turned items such as Bowls. Quick drying acrylic based lacquer is hard wearing and suitable for most timbers.
Can be used on its own or in conjunction with an Acrylic Lacquer to add sheen
(400ml Aerosol)

Arcrylic Lacquer - AerosolAcrylic Lacquer - Satin or Gloss - 7.00
Select sheen level
These increasingly popular aerosol lacquer finishes are easy to apply, quick drying and hard wearing. Acrylic lacquers are known for leaving a hard wearing finish with minimal effect to the timber's natural colour (400ml Aerosol)

Acrylic sanding sealer - aerosolAcrylic Sanding Sealer - 7.00

Sanding sealer in an aerosol can is perfect for preparing the timber for almost any other lacquer finish or wax. Easy to apply, quick drying clear base coat, seals and prepares the surface for your chosen finish. I also use it to stiffen difficult fibres when bowl turning to help achieve a silky smooth surface from the gouge (400ml Aerosol)

Chestnut Nyweb Abrasive PadsNyWeb Pads - 1.25 each or 12.00 for 10
Nyweb options
A very fine abrasive pad and an excellent (and safer) alternative to 0000 Steel Wool. Excellent for applying oils and waxes and cutting back between coats. Very flexible and can be easily cut down, washed out and re-used.

"Hope" Sanding Arbors,

These professional quality sanding arbors have been designed to work with any velcro backed abrasive such as the Rhyno-Grip Plusline and feature a medium density foam pad and replaceable softer pad, included in the price! They are fitted with a stainless steel shaft designed to fit all drills and drill-driver tools.
Designed by a turner for turners, they are meant to stand up to the every day treatment of a bowl turner.  A unique feature of these pads is that they are made slightly undersize so the abrasive overlaps and protects the edges of the pad.

Sanding Arbor50mm Power Sanding Arbors - 8.50
75mmPower Sanding Arbors - 11.50
Select pad size

Soft Interface PadsInterface Pad 50mm - 2.50
Interface Pad 75mm - 3.50
Select pad size
The "Hope" sanding arbors come with a replaceable pad as standard but when they become worn you can easily and cheaply replace this pad without buying a whole new arbor

Soft Interface PadSoft Interface Pad 50mm - 2.50
Soft Interface Pad 75mm - 3.50
Select pad size
As an addition to the standard arbor and interface pad, these soft pads offer far more flex when power sanding, allowing better access and better results when sanding inside of bowls and around tight curves


Hope calipers in use
Hope 10" Caliper - 30
A strange looking set of calipers, but like all Hope products, is designed by a woodturner for woodturners. These calipers are in frequent use in my workshop. The unique design ensures ease of use and the laser etched scale makes turning an even wall thickness a breeze!

Everbuild 502 Adhesive  - 4.00

Resin based wood glue supplied in a 500ml bottle. Ideal for all types of wood to wood joints and perfect for a segmented turner as it dries clear and resists 'creep', where a joint becomes noticable some time after it has been worked.

Rated to D3 - suitable for exterior woodwork and waterproof when dry.

Duplicating fingers in actionDuplicating Fingers - Set of 5 65
Number of fingers

Duplicating fingers are ideal for production turners and those that make batches of identical work, reducing the need for calipers and other measuring devices, helping to speed up the process and increase levels of accuracy. Available singley or in sets of 5 or 10.
