    If you have access to a bench grinder: White compound on a new cotton buff.

    You can use pa fine grit of steel wool to polish the bone such as 00 or 000.

    Wow! You carved a cow bone? That sounds like a really cool project! I hope you share pictures when it is done.

    Since I know nothing about bone carving, I looked online and found a tutorial. At the bottom is a polishing section. I hope it is helpful. : )

    It's used for polishing metals usually in jewelry making. It has a bit of wax and grit in it to polish the surface of the bone. https://www.gesswein.com/c-217-compounds.aspx

    You might find that the steel wool works fine. Please wear a dust mask when you work with bone.
