    Steve, that's gorgeous but why did you have to call it a Popcorn Bowl?

    steve, good looking bowl, as usual. i like the gloss finish but have never used a wipe on poly. do you wipe it on with 0000 steel wool? any dust concerns??

    Clark - wipe on is very simple. I use a piece of paper towel folded up into a small square and use it as a pad to apply the finish with. I put on very thin coats and usually stop at 3 to 5 coats depending on the wood and how well it takes the poly. Any small bumps are taken care with a super fine sanding sponge - just lightly going over the surface.

    Popcorn? Not big enough for popcorn at least not at my house.

    This is what would happen to me if I said, "Here's your popcorn...."

    But with that being said, WOW that is nice!

    Another winner, Steve. Pretty wood, and nice finish. I think you're getting the hang of this lathe stuff.

    Great looking ice cream bowl Steve. Not big enough for popcorn.
