Hi Cliff. Nice job with the plywood bowl. I find them interesting. What did you use for a finish?

Nice work, Cliff.............cheers, Jim

I noticed that it says CEEGO under the bowl photo, but in the project it shows your picture with Cliff under it. It is not all fixed yet.

Hi Dave, Good to see you on the new site.. I used a Food Safe Poly for the Finish and rubbed between coats with 0000Steel Wool.

Regards......Cliff.

Thanks Cliff for he reply. The reason I asked is when I made a few of these in the past I was soaking up a lot of finish.

Hi Dave...Now that I am getting used to the new site. I will try and put more detail into my descriptions, the Finish I used on the Plywood Bowl is Cabot"s BENCHTOP Clear. It is a highly durable Food Safe Varnish that enhances the natural timber grain. (water based)

I applied around 5 coats with a soft brush and rubbing gently between the first 4 coats with 0000 Steele Wool. You could also put on a good wax and buff it with a soft cloth. I didn't apply any wax as this was very much an experiment to see what a plywood fruit bowl would be like and also if there would be any problems in turning it.

Do we still have Private Messaging on this site? It was very handy to pass on some information to other Lumberjocks.

I hope this is of some assistance to you Dave.

Regards......Cliff.

Hi Cliff, I have found that wax free shellac is a real good sealer to prevent a lot of penetration of the top coat. Here it is sold under the name Seal Coat. The regular shellac is not recommended under poly.

Cheers, Jim
