Buffing Question?

Jack Freeman
>I need some advice:
I had almost finished a 12 inch Cherry bowl, putting about 15 coats of Waterlox on it, 4 oooo steel wool between each application. I then pulled out the Beall Buffing equipment and did the tripoli, white diamond and then waxed it. While waxing I started to see the high gloss shine going away. The surface is covered with a grainy/gummy surface. What did I do wrong? I assumed you could beall buff an oiled surface, was I wrong?
Thanks for all the great advice.
Jack
