If you have ever had the opportunity to see my furniture in person, you may have noticed that all of the exposed stainless steel fasteners have a great luster to them. This is a finish that I have to create on my own. It is done with a metal lathe and, although time-consuming, I feel the results are absolutely worth it.
Step One is turning with a carbide insert. This creates a perfectly flat surface and eliminates any odd surface marks.
the next step is the polishing the surface with a fine grit sandpaper to further refine the finish
The results are a handful of beauty!
