Thank you Sad Sam the blue one is stained with Spirit dye, which I find great as you can control how dark you want to go. I then used cellulose sealer followed by melamine lacquer (Light sanding between coats). once it had all dried I gave it a rub with car T cut.

They all look fantastic. Like most the blue bowl, very striking color and the spalted beech which is just gorgeous. They are truly eye catchers. Excellent work Derek!
