Spalted sugar maple

Spalted sugar maple bowl with rim treatment. Piece is 13 inches in diameter and 7 inches in height. Tree was cut down this summer and stored in the barn since then. I sand the piece through the grits to 320 grit. Finish is 3 coats of 1/3 high gloss poly, 1/3 high gloss tung oil, 1/3 mineral spirits. Piece is then sanded to 320 grit again and several coats of high gloss poly applied. When the finish is completely cured it goes to the buffing wheel.

Very, Very Nice!! I love the finish! I will have to give it a try. I have always used poly and buffed but never the formula that you use.

Thanks for sharing
