This is my first bowl Ive ever made on the lathe. This wood is pretty hard and its extremely oily. I kept having to clean the gunk off of my tools to get a good clean cut. I was kinda nervous about the crossgrain cutting that a bowl requires but I got through it and now we got a nice candy dish. My wife wouldnt let me sell this, she wanted it.
The finish is mylands friction polish I used this because like shellac it will actually dry on oily woods. I made the mistake of putting polyurethane on some bocote wood about a year ago and its still not dry.
