Finishing Holly

keith zimmerman, Normal, IL
>I'm getting ready to turn my first finials out of holly and was wondering if those of you that have turned holly before would share how to finish it to retain the white color, if possible. The holly I have is over two years old and is white with no staining.

Also, when I turn this finial, I want to turn it endgrain. How do you determine which way the grain runs, or does it matter?

Thanks in advance.
