    Ok @Mike1950 and @EastmansWoodturning here are the pieces i got from y'all.
    I am about 92.3% done.
    I used gf salad bowl finish on the large bowl and homemade blo/beeswax on the smaller ones.
    Honestly, I am not sure if they want a glossier finish or not. I will ask, but I kinda changed in mid stream.
    I may be wrong but I was thinking that the homemade finish would be better on the smaller bowls as they would get more action than the large bowl. I was thinking the large bowl wood probably have large plastic utensils used on it whereas the smaller bowls would have metal forks and it would be easier to retreat the small bowls if they were a wax finish.
    I have contemplated removing the finish on the large bowl and use the wax on it also.
    All comments and ideas are welcome.

    Thanks
    Robert
