Turning Archive 2004

>I have become VERY fond of Waterlox finishes for my turnings. To this point I have used the standard waterlox and several/multiple coats, either sanding a bit in between every other coat or applying with steel wool. When dry I've been rubbing them out as if they were furniture using my tried and true steel wool/beeswax/orange oil combo. Produces a wonderful low gloss sheen.
BUT I've seen turnings recently that have been gorgeously finished using Waterlox buffed on Beall or similar systems. I'm specifically thinking of the ones posted recently by Dave Peebles.
I noticed that Waterlox comes in two varities - standard and glossy.
Does anyone use the glossy and has anyone buffed out a standard Waterlox (and do they have a pic of it?). Dave, which are you using?
