Sounds stupid, but what does this mean and what does it do to the shaft?

Some people like to do this as a final step after cleaning and sanding if that's what they like. It tends to close the pours of the wood after cleaning simply by rubbing up and down until the wood and leather gets a little warm. It is best accomplished on a lathe though.
