    I was wonderin why I dont see many FBB's with a high gloss finish. It looks like there are more with a oil type finish than anything else? Any reason for this? Thanks:)

    Two reasons, mainly. One, I don't have a spray booth. Two, I prefer the feel of an oil finish.

    I have had people ask me about spray finishes and I will either attempt to outsource them or find someone with a spray booth to do it myself. No one who has asked about a spray finish has ever stayed the course, so I have never really had a reason to do one.
