I took a look at your projects, and your bowls are beautiful. You must be doing something right.

I don’t own a lathe, so have never made a bowl. But, when I want a nice, natural look, I go with a couple applications of Danish oil, let it cure for a few days, then apply paste wax and buff well. When I have gone for a shiny look – not often – I have just used gloss polyurethane, topped with a good car wax. I like New Finish. There are a lot classier ways – rubbing out multiple coats of shellac(?) – I am sure, but I have not gone there, yet.
