Re: Suggestions on a classroom finish sought

Obviously I am in the minority, but I don't like the idea of applying a finish in class that the students aren't likely to have at home. And it would seem inefficient to suggest everyone buy and keep a bottle of woodurning walnut oil at home for just one bowl - what I would consider a heavy environmental burden (manufacturing, packaging, shipping). Many households already have mineral oil, and for those that don't it is likely in every grocery store, so it is much easier/cheaper to obtain than woodturning walnut oil. Nor would I be comfortable telling a group of people to go home and heat oil and beeswax on their stove, given the fire hazard. For someone who knows what the risks are, and doesn't leave the stove until the process is complete, it may be safe. But it does have significant fire risk if one is not attentive and knowledgeable.
