Wooden objects with small opening, such as canisters, may prevent proper curing (oxidation) to occur. Room temperature should be maintained at around 72° F. Salad Bowl Finish is a ready-to-use product. Do not add reducers. Use only additional coats of Salad Bowl Finish yo build a finish ( do not apply over other finishes). Mix thoroughly prior to application.
