Nice job, Dennis. I'm usually not really a fan of straight, sharp lines on turned bowls, but for some reason this one works for me.

I have neutral feelings on this one. I don't hate it nor do I like it. The reason is the same that was provided by Vaughn.
I'm wtih Vaughn. I like the wood and the shape grows on you.
Nicely done Dennis.

To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funnybone.
The wood and finish is what makes the Pot, How many ways can you make a short fat bowl. I like the flat effect, especially if it brings out the wood figuring, (often a curves surface will hide the figuring) Perhaps if you had added some other detail so that it doesn't look like you had to hide a gouge cut or gave up on trying to roundover. Simplistic is nice but sometimes simplistic it just too simple. Two questions are, what were you trying to achieve with the design and Did you achieve it?
Thanks for posting another way to make a short fat bowl with holes in the lid.
PS... The finish is great.
