    Well, I guess I'll be the odd man out. I think the spalted beech bowl is the best of the lot. You know, the metric one.

    Very nice work, Chas.

    Jokes apart, how did you finish them?? Plain wax??

    Toni, They were coated with diluted Cellulose Sanding sealer before and during turning to aid cutting the spalted wood, after final sanding they had a final sealing coat (diluted) any lifted grain/dust nibs removed and then soft wax* applied and burnished with a cotton cloth.
