This is a piece of Cedar. I’m not sure if it has another name like my other Cedar bowls are aromatic Cedar. Anyways, I am trying a new finish. This one has been sanded to 320 and finished with 4 coats of wipe-on poly with a light sanding with 1,200 grit in between. Then buffed with Carnauba wax.
I was going for a smooth and glossy finish. Found this while watching videos about finishing turned bowls on YouTube so I figured I’d give it a try. I think I found my new finish. The only problem is it takes a day just to put a finish on a bowl. Put a coat on and it has to dry for 2 hrs before you sand and it didn’t really start taking a shine till bout the 3rd coat so finishing is an all day project in itself. Guess you can’t rush perfection though huh?
If your wondering why I’m taking pics of it in a parking lot its because I took it with me to Pizza Hut to dinner and show my grandparents and somebody saw me showing them and got talking bout it and ended up wanting to buy it. Had to get pics before it was gone.
Keep your eyes open for the platter I did the other day using the same wipe-on poly finish.
Thanks for lookin.g and as usual, all comments are welcome.
