Q. How do you finish your work?
A. If people are going to use my bowls as salad
bowls I oil finish them. The oil finish will require re-oiling from
time to time to keep that satin finish. The rest of the bowls and
furniture are finished in a hard, acid cured lacquer, which should only rerquire wiping with a damp cloth to keep them
looking good. DO NOT use any polishes containing silicon as
this makes them extremely difficult and expensive to re-finish if
ever the need arises.
