What I learned from this project, Bubinga is a very hard wood. Turning the segmented ring pieces wasn’t too bad but the bottom was a disk cut from the same board so now you’re dealing with end grain. The tear-out was so bad I almost had to cut off the bottom and glue on a new base. I was able to salvage it using some very light cuts but the base is smaller than I planed. Next time if use Bubinga again I will make the bottom from segments as well so I’m cutting more edge grain. This bowl is 7.5” x 4”. Sanded to 600, polished with EEE and finished with OB shine juice. Thanks for looking.
