Q. What other materials do you use?

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.

Q. What Kind of guarantee do you give your work?
