I finished an apple wood bowl today. The tree came from my aunts yard in Blairsville, GA. I made her one awhile back but I wanted one for myself. From sitting in my log pile in my basement for 2 years, the log aquired some spalting. I sanded up to 500 grit. I then applied 3 coats of a wiping varnish with 1200 and 1500 grit sanding after each of those. For the first time, I used EEE polish and Shellawax. I really like both of these for the finish.
