    Bowl #2

    Well, I've done it again. Small chunk of cherry from John Hart, 5" diameter, 2-1/2" tall, it's thick at about 1/2" (I'm still a chicken), finished with BLO/shellac/friction polish. There were several places where the finish just would NOT shine up, despite my best efforts. Some tearout in the end grain which I wet-sanded with BLO and got filled with the slurry. Did a little something different with the rim. LOML likes it .

    My little signature lasering on the bottom. Again I used the little 1/4" foot on this bowl. Easy to turn and gives a place for the Oneway to grab when doing the inside.

    Comments and critiques welcome.

    Well, your second bowl looks a LOT better than mine, which I just finished up. Keep it up and you'll be turning things like Vaughn and Bernie in no time!

    Nicely done, Nancy. Looks like there are some cool things going on in the cherry grain, too.

    Sweet! Love the grain. If that's what a second bowl looks like, maybe I'll try that spinny stuff some day.

    Off topic a little, have you seen the Steel City tablesaw with the granite top? Did they show that at LV? Its hard to imagine

    Stay cool.

    Hey Nancy the bowl looks mighty fine to me. I like the rim and finish. Well done. Keep'em coming.
