    Joe that is a beauty. I like bowls with simple form and the wood looks great. Well done.

    Nicely done, Joe. Looks like you still have the knack, huh?

    You mentioned in your Dirty Shop thread that you oiled the wood before the finish cuts. Was it Antique Oil, or something else?

    Used Antique oil, helped with the tearout a lot.

    Thanks...I'll have to give that a try. I can usually handle the tearout on the outside of pieces, but on the inside (particularly on hollow forms...but also on some bowls), I sometimes get to the point where I have to put away the steel and go to the grit. Don't want to pull an Addy and make the inside dimension bigger than the outside dimension.

    Joe well done. I'll have to try the oil before final cuts as well.
