Here is a question from Volume 5 - Issue #3 of RodMaker Magazine.
Hi Tom, I'm getting ready to do the finish on some rod wraps and
I thought I might give your hand turning method a try. I've always
had trouble on the label wrap getting wavy. Some people say I use
too much finish and some say I'm using too little. I use LS Supreme.
Could you give me a few hints on doing a successful job? Thanks.

I have found the trick on these longer areas is to brush the finish
out lengthwise, taking care to only apply enough finish to cover the
entire surface to a fairly thin depth. It is also important to make
sure your rod is level. ~ Tom Kirkman
