    Buffed Out the Bubinga

    As I mentioned in an earlier thread, I wasn't quite done with the finish on the square bubinga bowl. I've now wet sanded the lacquer with 600 grit, then worked through the standard buffing routine. I got my grand piano finish. I know some folks don't like glossy finishes, but this piece of wood really screamed out for one IMHO.

    This pic doesn't really show how smooth it came out, but it's late so it'll have to do.
