2 more bowls. The first is an oak live edge bowl. I rescued this wood from someone that wanted to burn it. It’s approximately 6.5” across. I sanded to 400 grit then used a is abrasive paste to finish. The paste really does work well on smooth bowls. I’m really happy with how it turned out.
The second bowl is a winged bowl made from eucalyptus. Very dense wood and hard on tools but still fun to turn and was going to be burned otherwise so hey give it another life. The bowl was finished with shellack.

That live edge Oak bowl is as beautiful, as it would have made a nice cozy fire, just great. Your saving it just gave you something fun to do. :-)

the oak is dynamite – the eucalyptus is (to me) OK but I’m sure it was a challenge to turn
