Finishing Cedar

Bob Moffett
>I am turning a series of Cedar natural edge bowls. What is a good finish to use on them? I tried Deft on one and it looked good for a while and then spots started to appear in the finish where there appeard to be no finish anymore. I am trying some Waterlox now (3 coats sealer & 3 coats gloss) but it doesn't appear uniform. I have been using the same formula of Waterlox on my other bowls and it looks good, but not on cedar. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
