Warren in Lancaster, PA
I do a dust rag test on carvings. Sharp edges or corners on leaves or flowers create a problem for the person who has to dust carvings. So I run a rag over a carving and note where the rag gets snagged. Those corners get d´┐╝octored with a gouge, or a wooden burnisher, or 320 paper. It takes very little to make a difference for the rag and does not show up as a noticeable reflective surface.

You can use a small piece of walnut just to run down the edge, or 320 paper. You don't have to work hard.
