? re utility bowl finish.
Apr 10th, 2016 at 2:19pm
 
In the past I have finished several utility salad bowls with walnut oil and then when cured with bees wax. I have supplied family members with an oil/wax paste for rejuvenating but they don't all remember and sometimes the bowls start to look pretty worn.
Does it make any sense to finish with Danish to provide a bit more sealing than cured walnut oil and then to follow with my usual walnut oil and bees wax? Or is the wood so sealed with one coat of Danish that any oil after that is useless. I do want a natural look and feel.
Any response appreciated as my finishing experience is quite limited.

With use I expect every type of finish is going to show some wear.  Some call it character or patina.  If you want a very soft finish use mineral oil, which almost every household already has, and write the name of the finish on the bottom of the bowl so users will always know what to use.  Wax is short lived and I wouldn't use.
