Hi,

I just wanted to get an idea of some nice finishes that can be used for
things like pens,bowls etc.

Also is it a good idea to use a finish like a lacquer on a job while the
lathe is going or is it better to finish it away from the lathe??

Another question is say i was making a wodden mug or something and i wanted
to have liquids in it after it was made. What sort of finish would i use???

Anyway that is all for now
thanx

I do medievil reenacting where we use a lot of wooden bowls, plates, mugs,
spoons, etc. A good coating is mineral oil. It is odorless, colorless. It
is also inorganic and will not turn rancid like some vegetable oils.
