Neat… I’m assuming you do your finish turning and sand most of it, then burn, then clean up any areas you didn’t want burned by sanding again?

Thanks for all the great feedback guys. Topspin that is pretty much how i did this one, but next time i think i will leave a little more meat so i can do a few cuts after the burning to give it a better line. Sedcokid i will send you an email soon with full instuctions on how i did it. thanks again guys. Oh ya and a side note this piece sold in about 24 hours of it being finished.

Great bowl, like the shape and the proportions of the area you decided to burn and carve.Cheers, Richard
