Raftermonkey, my book doesn’t do alot of chemistry, I do a fair amount of why , I think. The book is mostly “how ”. I am more of a lets “cut to the chase” sort of guy . I do explain why and then show you “why” ..

On those live edge bowls, soak them good in some Formbys Low sheen tung oil, it seems to alter the color the least, and offers up a nice clear, matte sheen .Be sure to soak the bark as much as possible to solidify it. If its too much sheen then use some 400 grit paper and some General Finishes satin wax, I like to actually sand with the wax, then wipe it off , let it dry then buff it out.
