Finish for bowls

Or anything else that comes into contact with food. What do you use?

Dr. Evil,
About a year ago there was a good article in one of the woodworking magazines about food safe finishes. Basically, any of the polyurethanes, varnishes, or lacquer finishes are food safe once they cure. An easy way to tell when it's fully cured is when the solvent odor is no longer present.

I've promoted this product here a number of times and no I'm not affiliated with the company. I like Doctor's Woodshop finishes. http://www.doctorswoodshop.com/
They're easy to apply right on the lathe, they dry quickly, don't stinks and give a nice soft luster that easily repairable if need be. Mike, the guy who owns this company, is very nice and will answer any questions you may have.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Are the Doctor' products sold anywhere else besides his website? The products sound good but the shipping charges to Wisconsin almost doubles the cost and makes it hard to justify for me. The prices are ok if the could be found in a store (no shipping).

He's based in Oregon (Portland I believe) and I'm here in Seattle area. They sell it in my local Woodcraft, but not through their website. Order several bottles/products and shipping will go down. You won't be sorry, they're that nice.
