    Spalted Maple Bowls

    Here is a couple small bowls I finished today. 2 coats of Shellac and some Carnuba buffing. Does anyone have any better ideas for a finish for this type/style of wood?

    Man, that's some nice wood, Jon. Great job with it, too.

    I've used Minwax Antique Oil with good results on spalted maple.

    Jon, very good looking bowls, very nice wood too.
    I finish my pieces of work with transparent stain, and, or Glitsa, with the reason that it is washable with a wet towel. Before I used Danish oil, but everyone touched it with his of her hands, and after a time it leaves marks behind. Not the best thinkable finish, but also not the worst finish.

    Jon some great looking wood and great looking bowl. I use Minwax Antique Oil and General Finishes Seal-A-Cell and then Arm-R-Seal. I have several plates, platters and salad bowl sets with the General Finishes that have been used for almost 2 yrs and still look good.
