Care for your woodturning

The Sprague Woodturning bowl you have purchased or received as a gift is unique. There is no other iike yours in the world.

 

Care for your wooden bowl

  1. Do not put your bowl or any other wood products in the dishwasher. Wooden bowls can’t take the heat and water that a dishwasher uses in its cleaning cycle.
  2. To wash your bowl, place it in the sink with warm soapy water. Wash and dry it ASAP. Do not let your bowl soak in the water, this will be bad for it!
  3. Your bowl is covered with Generals Salad Bowl Finish, and will require little to no maintenance. If the need arises it can be purchased online at Woodchuckers, http://shop.woodchuckers.com/general-salad-bowl-finish-1pt-473ml/dp/3068 or Wood Essence http://www.woodessence.com/General-Finishes-Salad-Bowl-Finish-P203.aspx. To refinish your bowl, use 0000 steel wool that can be bought at any hardware store and buff entire surface to remove any scratches and make sure to completely remove any residue from the steel wool prior to applying the finish. Once the surface is ready for the finish, simply follow the directions on the can and your bowl will be as good as new!

    I purchased your cherry and alabaster wooden board that has an inlay of black grooves that look like beautiful tree branches and roots. I am very interested in the process you used to get this finish. Could you please explain it to me. Something about an electrical charge if I remember correctly?
