Topic tags/keywords: tip question maple burl finishing

Hello I have several turning projects that I want to finish using Waterlox. Several of which are bowls made out of Australian burls (red mallee and coolibah) with the live edge still intact. And another is a handle for a scratch awl made from a maple burl that I dyed using Triferns method.

You can see several of the pieces on my blog:

Each project had been sanded up to 800 grit and I plan on using the Waterlox original sealer followed by the waterlox high gloss finish to give each piece a nice shine.

I was wondering if anyone could give me several pointers on how to best apply the finish to get the best results.

Also should I still buff each piece after the Waterlox is applied to add extra protection?? (tripoli, white diamond, and caruba wax)
