    On the bowl that I just finished I used the blo and beeswax mixture on it. The person that I made it for wants a more glossy finish so I am going to use a friction polish. My question is how should I proceed in removing the blo beeswax coating that I have on it so the friction polish will stick.

    Turpentine? Sanding? Both?

    Thanks

    I just went back starting with a 80 grit and all the way up to 600. In hindsight I probably should have used turpentine or something to get off the largest portion of wax first but i think it worked out
