Finishes for wood/epoxy bowls
Jul 22nd, 2021 at 11:40am
 
I continue to experiment with epoxy/wood bowls and learn something new with each experiment. For you guys making bowls that are a epoxy/wood composition what type of finishes are you using? Has anyone tried Shellawax?

I use Gloss or satin Poly. Sand to 320 or higher. Most often sand to 600.

There are any number of finishes out there, but not all are durable enough for a bowl that will be used.  What sheen do you want, and how durable?

Looking for a gloss and bowl will be for home decor.

I would use High Gloss polyurethane. Even on the edge
