    I have made a number of spreaders as Paul described and of my own design. Oil makes them look okay but not spectacular. I put four coats of salad bowl varnish on them and they look great! as I feared, it wears down fairly quickly at the edges.

    Does anybody have a suggestion for a “bulletproof” finish for this small task?

    In one of Paul’s projects, he point out that abrupt, sharp angles don’t readily absorb finish. His solution was to slightly round the corners (angles).

    Thanks for your response, I am now using Osmo poly hard wax. So far so good.
