No need to dull down, I prefer it not to be bright in the first place. I do all my own restoration work so for me, a mistake with navel jelly means only doing the job over, not losing money. Not sure why you would have to do anything to your barrels after getting them back from a restorer. If you do, the job was incomplete. In all of my years of doing barrels, I have never had a mistake with navel jelly. Not that it couldn't happen but it hasn't yet. And I don't expect that it will going forward. But I agree that Brian's method is safer and will probably try it with my next batch of barrels. But maybe not, I've been using navel jelly and 0000 to get the look I want, without removing metal, for many years.
