Finishing objects

>I thought I'd offer my system for holding hollowforms and see what folks do to finish bowls?

When I have a hollowform to spray or oil, I string a 25# test fishing line from overhead and tie a small piece of wood to the end. I then insert the wood through the hole in the hollowform, and spray/wipe/brush away. No finishing marks from sitting on a table or outside holding devices.

I've just started oil finishing bowls, and I'm trying to think of a way to do the same. So what do you do to hold a bowl while finishing?
