This is an Asian Chestnut bowl that I found in the chip barrel from last November. I dug it out last week and finished it on Saturday. It has some bad areas and I was worried about holding it by the tenon which was about 60% of the diameter the rest was air. Funny thing is I don’t remember roughing it out!!
It is 6 1/2” x 2 7/8” high and is finished with several coats of gloss wipe on poly. This is the first time I tried a wipe on finish and I think I like the buffed or spray finish better. This took a lot of time to build up with wet sanding in between.
