>This is an up date on the padauk and maple bowl that would not dry with a wipe on poly finish.
Well after 12 days the finish was dry to the touch, so I decided to apply a coat of wax, BIG MISTAKE with padauk, the open grain of the padauk left white marks of wax not very pleasing.
Ended up sanding the bowl right down to nothing and restarting, do to time restraints used friction finish, 3 coats. came out ok but not as glossy as I was hoping for.
