This has been a long time coming. I actually cut this chunk I off the stump so it took a couple weeks to dry after I rough turned it. It is the largest bowl I’ve turned 12-1/2”x3”. It is finished with general finishes bowl finish. I think it turned out quite nice.

Also on the bottom you see the brand my wife bought for me. I really like it.

Nice looking bowl. The the wood grain colors.

I am not a turner but the folks in our shop that are like the GF Wood Bowl Finish. Makes a great shiny finish. I use it on some of my cutting boards.

I’ll join in on the color comments, really striking!

Bowls that size easily become center of table focus pieces, display proudly!

Thank you all for the comments. This was a really fun one to turn. My wife claimed this one the first time she saw it.
