This little bowl is the cutoff from the log I used to turn a natural edge bowl.
Click for details

It measures about 4” in diameter, and is about 3 1/2” tall. After sanding to 800 grit, they were sealed with lacquer sealer, then got 6 costs of poly. After about a week of curing time I buffed them with the Beall system and finished with Renaissance wax.

I may turn a lid for it out of some contrasting color wood … the jury is still out on that.

Dane,

Bowl looks great. Had a few questions. What grit do you use in between coats of poly and how long do you wait between coats. Also, how do you make the mark on the bottom of the piece?

Q: What grit do you use in between coats of poly and how long do you wait between coats?
A: Sanded to 800 grit and used 800 between coats.

Q: Also, how do you make the mark on the bottom of the piece?
A: I have a Colwood burner … I use the razor tip for stuff like this.

Thanks for the answers. I just started turning. Trying out various finishes with what I have on hand.
I like the high gloss/shine look on some pieces. Just started a piece with wipe only.
Expecting to use several coats, then crystal clear wax. I’ve tried just crystal clear wax with mineral oil.
The result did not have much shine to it.

This bowl was sold at a charity auction in February 2015 … someone gave $45 for it.
