    John that bowl looks just fine to me. The wife has about 3 of those size and one is a glue up after a catch. She uses them for candy dishes when the grandkids come. Great save on that one John. You did a great job with it.

    There you go, thats looking like a decent bowl for sure!

    Sanding will improve it, make sure you go through the grits, don't skip, and I'll bet that will turn our nice.

    The more you do the more you will improve, keep at it!

    Nice job, John. That'll make a fine nut bowl. It's always fun when they survive the ride...even if they need a little hospitalization on the way. I can see you're already going to use this one as a learning experience to improve the next one. (and it sounds like you're having fun doing it, too.) In the future, you may find the sanding is easier if you do as much of it as possible before taking the bowl off the lathe. For me, even the hand sanding is easier that way. The piece is held in a stable position at a comfortable height.
