    If you want to pop the grain on your Tiger Maple mill, Shellac might do the trick but Danish Oil will also. Nothing like a nice oil finish to pop the grain on any wood. I used plain Tung Oil years...

    I agree with John, cut them up and make whatever you want from them. A 16" bowl is a huge bowl, nothing wrong with making smaller bowls.

    Do not just anchor seal the ends and leave them whole or...

    Those look like cheap tools, but otherwise congratulations. Now you need a grinder and jig(s) and start playing. All kinds of free wood can be found - there's always a tree being cut down somewhere.

    Isn't Yorkshire Grit just a wax or type of wax? If so it won't last very long at all on something that is handled often. Wax is not a finish, it's a top coat at best to make the piece feel good.
