Hand sanding the ring boxes at 600 on the flat surfaces and another cost of tung oil. I’ll probably repeat the is 2 more times for a super smooth and soft feeling finish.

I’m also gluing a chip in the glaze on the lid for my sugar bowl. I designed a bowl with a lid that has a space for a spoon years ago and my mom made it for me. (She’s a potter, we’re a crafty family) it’s been one of my favorite pieces and used daily for probably 10 years now, but my pre-coffee fingers fumbled the lid and it fell 4 inches to the counter and chipped 😥 hopefully it won’t be noticeable after a bit of super glue and buffing.

Bonus semi-pro tip: eating chocolate chocolate chip cookies while sanding has been proven to distract from monotony and improve results. Highly recommended on all sanding jobs.
