I have used the salad bowl finish but didn't care for it. I used it on our first salad bowls and after 1 1/2 years it started getting sticky. Sanded it all off and finished with Antique Oil. Ernie Conover told me he uses AO on all his utility stuff and has worked well for him. I have also used General Finishes Seal-A-Cell first followed by Arm-R-Seal.

To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funnybone.
