Two small bowls of Ebony, Bloodwood, Holly and Purpleheart.
These were fun to turn. I used original gorilla glue and Shellawax Cream for polishing

Gorilla glue was for the gluing and the Shellawax was the polish. Although you can use CA glue like a laquer

I’ve used CA for a finish before, but thought GG was a polyurethane glue… i think i just mis-interpreted the use of the glue LOL
