Don't want to screw this away at the finish, yes pun intended! This burl wasn't id'd, I am guessing maple burl but if feels kind of light. Dried in a rough flat blank for about 17 years, so other than the humidity here in NW Florida, its pretty dry. I do want the burl grain to pop a bit, but the only finish I have used to date is Danish oil on a couple of bowls and CA on my pens. What would you recommend? Sanded to 800 on the lathe and 1000 on the bottom after cutting it away. I was thinking of using the polycrylic or staying with the Danish oil. I like the fairly light color but if your recommendation darkens it up a bit, I am not opposed to it. Trying to learn patience so slow is OK too.
