Ashford Traveller Spinning Wheel

. . . and here it is!

When it arrived, I decided to treat the wood with clear varnish to help keep it clean and applied one coat.  Luckily, the varnish I used was quite thin and soaked completely into the wood.  I say "luckily", because by that time I'd decided that, actually, I'd prefer it waxed!  I then spent the next few days coating it with home-made beeswax polish, and I'm really pleased with the result.  It's come out a lovely warm colour.  Hopefully I won't have to do it too often, because it did take quite a bit of time.
