So I noticed this topic yesterday, and it reminded me of something. I remember a link being forwarded around about a year ago from my co-workers about wooden "toys". I found the siteNSFW .

They're may be some helpful things located around the site about finishes, and woods.

By golly, I think I've got it....

It's everything you'd want in a protective coating, durable, hard but soft, and comes in colors sure to please.

in exciting Black:

or daring Red:
http://www.amazon.com/Plastic-Dip-Intl-18201-Plasti-Dip/dp/B000HE9VV8/ref=pd_cp_hi_3/177-2590586-5969205
for those "down days" when feeling Blue:
http://www.amazon.com/Dip-Grip-Rubberized-Plastic-Coating-BLUE/dp/B000XB16YK/ref=pd_sim_hi_1/177-2590586-5969205
and finally if all else fails, and there's a need for those "good vibrations" as the song says:
http://www.vibrators.com/

My first suggestion would be to orient the grain along the length, as that would give it the strength it might need. A turning such as this might benefit from a species named appropriately. We wonder how some woods were named. In alphabetical order:

Beefwood
Bimblebox
Black Box
Blackbutt
Boxwood
Brushbox
Cumaru
Fir
Jongkong
Little Bone
Monkeypod
Rubberwood

Any wood would have to be sealed significantly to protect it from fluids, and allow it to be washable. That should be done by hand, not machine. Once sealed, and for first time use, I would recommend using extra virgin olive oil.

To maintain an element of privacy when in the company of family, relatives, and friends, making reference to your "new friend" should sound like it's a real person. You could use a wood name like Billy Webb.

Nice Cabinetman, got a good chuckle from that. I suppose Dogwood could get you in trouble with the authorities.

Barncat,
Go to the Woodturning section of the forum here: http://www.woodworkingtalk.com/f6/
and start a new thread with your question so you are not hijacking someone else's thread. Be as specific as possible. I'm sure you will get lots of great answers. And welcome to the forum.

So I turned another one yesterday, I used 12 coats of thin CA then micromeshed up to 12000 grit, its like glass. This is pretty funny, my GF had told a few of her friends and showed them the pics, and they all want one now, might have found a new market segment to go after lol.

I ordered some GF salad bowl finish yesterday also, the woodcraft in my area closed its doors yesterday which is a bummer, now i have to get all my supplies online.

No pics please.

Measure Twice Cut Once -- It's a lot easier to cut more off then it is to cut MORON.
Finishing is 3 parts chemistry and 1 part VooDoo http://lrgwood.com
