    Modest Cherry Bowl

    A simple and modest Cherry bowl, 7 diameter x 2 3/8 high, sanded to 400 grit, 5 thinned coats of Minwax Wipe-On Gloss Poly. Will wait for at least a week before buffing.

    Steve, are you sure you don't have a wood extrusion machine in your shop, just pumping these bowls out? This one's another very nice example of a classic bowl.

    Steve, that is absolutely beautiful!
    I hope you'll post photos of it after you buff it. I'd love to see what difference the buffing will make.
    Thanks for sharing.

    I guess you are what they call a production turner!

    Very nice!

    Steve, even without buffing it look gorgeous, so I'm curious to see the difference when you buff it.

    steve, another great looking bowl from one of my favorite woods. you've got that finish technique down pat. how many days does it take for five coats? do you wipe on with paper towels or what?

    Thanks everyone!

    Clark - usually takes 3 days for finishing. The day I take the turning off the lathe it gets a full coat of poly. I let that dry for close to 24 hours then apply the first coat on just the inside. That usually dries in a few hours and I can reapply. Once the inside is done I do the same with the outside.

    I use a paper towel ripped up into small squares to apply the poly. Hope that helps.
    Steve
