Yup. it just sanding with with oil.

IMO, the best thing about sanding with oil is less airborne dust.

Some will say that it helps fill in the pores with slurry.

I used to oil sand, but it is to dang messy

Ron,
What type of oil is used?
Is it more beneficial ( less stressful) to the wood?

Chuck I use regular old danish oil. You can acheive a babys butt smooth finish this way. The slurry from the oil and the sawdust from sanding, mix and seal all the pores in the wood. But I agree, it is awlful messy.

The best oil to use is the same oil you plan on finishing your project with.

Like Paul, I used DO, but I would thin mine down a little.

Beneficial... well you would be half way finished with the finish when you where done sanding.

Stressful... well because of the lubrication there would be less chance to get heat cracks.

I felt oil was to messy and clogged up sand paper quicker.

There are allot of pros and cons, every turner should learn this technique.

I have been using it for yrs on my flatwork and I feel you get a much smoother finish with it and now use it on my lathe work,but turn at the slowest spead your lathe will turn at.I have some old heavy towels that I lay on the lathe bed,just don't let them get to close to your work,then hang them outside or up in a corner when not using them as they may catch fire if you just throw them in a pile somewhere.
