I assume your talking about segmented bowls, not using titebond as a finish. I prefer titebond 11, it isn't as runny. I use titebond 3 if I know it needs some water resistance. I use epoxy if I really think it needs water resistance or if the glue up is really complicated.

It depends on the project. I use lacquer thinned 50/50 with lacquer thinner for many projects. I spray it. If you don't have a spray gun and facilities I recommend Minwax wipe on Poly. It's an easy to use good quality finish. For user bowls I use Mike Mahoney Walnut oil. Many people use Watco Danish Oil

I mainly use TB III on my bowls. As for a finish, if it going to be used for food I use walnut oil, if it is just for show I use lacquer. I apply the lacquer with a clean rag while the piece is still in the lathe, and rub it in with the lathe running. I apply 3-4 coats. I have found that it give semi-gloss lacquer a little more shine. With the oil I just rub it on with with a clean rag and let it soak in. I usually do 3-4 coats.

Assumption is the mother of all foul -ups
