A coworker, Brenda, is retiring at the end of the year. She cut down a cherry tree in her front yard and brought me some of the logs so I made her a couple of bowls. I started them months ago. I left them thick, coated them with paste wax and paper bagged them. After about 3 months on the shelf, they had finished drying so I re-turned them and thinned them down. After several sandings I coated them with a mix of shellac/mineral spirits/boiled linseed oil. Then a few coats of regular shellac and then polished with Renaisance wax.
