WOODTURNING PASTES ON THE MARKET
There are 3 major brands of Woodturning paste on the market. These are EEE-Ultrashine, Yorkshire Grit, and Dr. Kirks Scratch Free. All of these products are meant to remove the fine scratches left by your sanding.
The benefits of using these pastes are:
- Saves time on sanding
- Reduces airborne dust
- replaces buffing
- provides protection and shine
Some folks sand to 240 or 320 and go directly to the woodturning paste and others apply a coat of sanding sealer before using the paste. Depends on the wood and your preference.

This sanding butter can be made with 1 part beeswax, 1 part tripole, 5 parts mineral oil, BY WEIGHT. Works the same as the store bought butter.
