A very nice bowl ,Great you power sand on lathe ,did you start with green or kiln or air dried
Thanks for posting. I just started one and it checked on the lathe over nite ,now throw away ,dry wood too.
Or well will do another , I beleive there was a check in it when I strated. ,or maybe should have coated it with something when I left it. What do you all think ?

Thanks guys. No I didn’t power sand, just held sandpaper against it while the lathe was running. I’m not sure if it was air of kiln dried, I would imagine kiln because I bought the blank at a local windsor plywood.

This is a gorgeous bowl. Everytime I see a post like this I regret never having added a lathe to my shop.

I just did one coat of walnut oil to bring out the grain a little, one coat of EEE shine and then a couple coats of orange wax

A great bowl and some real good looking Cherry. I have a small nut bowl I turned from cherry many years ago and it’s still my favorite because of the swirly grain.
