Subject:
What finish do you use on plates?

>I usually only post on the flat side but have been doing quite a bit of turning (for me) the past few months.

A couple of weeks ago I got hooked on making plates/platters/trays. I'm hoping to sell these items as purely functional. I've used mostly mineral oil so far but have used lacquer on a couple of them and buffed them out.

What do you all use for finish on this type of item and what do you find the buyer likes best?

Thanks,
Sue
