Learn how to turn a bowl from wood that is not quite dry, but isn't so wet that it needs to dry for months. Mike shows how to rough out a partially seasoned walnut blank, dry it in a matter of weeks, then turns a bowl from start to finish.

    In another video you used Yorkshire Grit and Scratch Free to finish a maple bowl, and I think you said your final finish is often waterlox since it provides a food safe finish. I think you also recommended avoiding Scratch Free on darker woods since it may get stuck in the grain patterns. After watching this video, I’m a little confused on what the best finish is for the figured darker woods that might have food contact.
    Thanks, Jack
