About 9” diameter, about 3” tall. Finish is a couple of sealcoats of water-based poly, followed by sanding and micro-mesh polishing to 8000 grit, followed by paste wax. I should have used Danish oil instead of paste wax, as there are little white flecks in some of the grain pockets, but those will wear away with time.

Hello,

Nice burr bowl!

To prevent white residue from forming when using waxes, make sure you use a good quality microcrystalline wax like Renaissance Wax. Microwaxes dry crystal clear (no white residue!) and are highly resistant to water, food acids, alcohols and will not show fingerprints on finished surfaces. Take care and all the best to you and yours!

That is a very nice piece of wood and when you start with that, the end result can only get better. Nice piece.

I would think that you’d have to apply the Danish oil before the “sealcoats” of poly . Anyway , I can’t see the wax specks from here…beautiful bowl :)

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!
