Those are beautiful bowls, pottz! I really like the finish on them. What's your secret to getting such a smooth finish with that many coats of Arm-R-Seal?
no secret just sand to 220 grit then wipe on one at a time.usually 3-5 coats. i also love using the maloof blend.

Do you finish them on the lathe Pottz? I have used shellac with BIO as the lathe is running.
