Very pretty bowl, Rodney, and I love the shape you turned. For a high gloss finish, I like ‘Moses T’s Gun Stocker’s High Gloss Finish’ from Stephen Shepherd’s “Full Chisel Store” http://www.fullchisel.com/blog/?page_id=1964#ecwid:category=1576100&mode=category&offset=0&sort=addedTimeDesc

Nice bowl! I love the turquoise inlay. Is that Texas Mesquite?
If the bowl is not too big, I sand to 400 grit, polish to 2000 with EEE polish and then friction polish with Shellawax.
On bigger pieces I use many coats of gloss lacquer and sand with 400 and water between coats .

Nice looking bowl there Rodney, your finish will depend on the end use, ie, ornamental or day to day use, Jim’s alternative suggestions would look after most situations, I use a lot of Rattle can then cut back any orange peel with EEE Ultra shine which is a very fine abrasive polish
