That I did a few months back. Manitoba Maple that has been drying for 3 years. 7" in diameter and 2-1/2" deep. Used my 3/4" roughing gouge and 1/4" round nose scraper.
While I still had in the chuck I sanded to 400 grit, applied 2 coats of Minwax Gloss Wipe On Poly, rubbed down with super fine steel wool between coats, applied 6 coats of Minwax Satin Wipe On Ploy and polished with Hut Ultra Gloss.
Made a doughnut chuck and removed the tenon to make a foot and finished the foot with Minwax Satin Wipe On Poly.
I might have to go a buy the proper chisels for bowl turning to see if future bowls will be easier to turn and and finish better.
As always question, comments and or suggestions appreciated.
Thanks for looking.
