Not sure if this is the right place to put this so sorry if I posted in the wrong board.

How do you package your bowls/turning for shipping without damaging finish?

Thanks,

Matt

Wrap them in cloth before any plastic or rubberized material.  A some plastic and those soft shelf mats will lift finish or melt into it.

+1 to what Jim said.  Never Smiley put bubble wrap against anything with a finish (don't ask how I know ... Smiley )

PS - try to use white cotton cloth (like t-shirt material) Thumbs Up
