>>>What type of finish do you use on macassar ebony? On my turnings I usually use an oil mixture, but am not liking the way it is turning out on the macassar.

DaveL,

Do you want shiny? For several types of ebony I use no finish, just polish by hand with a bit of paste metal or plastic polishing compound or with a buffing wheel. I use a bit of Renaissance Wax after polishing.

I didn't shoot these specifically to highlight the surfaces but the little one is glossy, the big one more satin, polished then toned down with steel wool or pumice or something, I forget.
