This bowl cracked during the drying process when I used a bag of shavings for a kiln. It’s been about a week in the new dehydrator and the crack seemed stable so I went ahead and finished turning it. This is my first foray into a water based sealer. GF salad bowl finish. I’m not liking it as much as other food safe finishes that are oil base because the oils seems to smooth out better. This is three coats.

I’m considering making a cherry pedestal for it.

A pity about the cracking Russell, it is a nice looking design & piece of timber, hope it stay together for you

Beautiful shape and amazing finish. Great salvage and turning of the wood.
