The cherry bowl is looking beautiful. Is the wood wasted while turning used for any other purpose?

Gorgeous bowl. I’m working with some cherry myself right now. Did you dry the blank yourself?

I’ve turned quite a few of these “bowl within a bowl ” designs & the public is fond of them..If you intend to eat out of this, tung oil is not considered edible. nice turning
