This piece of Cherry was from a friend that had a burn pile so I saved this from the ashes… It is turned very thin to 1/8” on the wings this piece measures 11” from wing to wing. The finish is laquer four coats and then buffed on the Beal.

All Comments are welcomed and thanks for looking.

Thanks guys for the comments. Just an FYI I gave this back to the couple that were going to burn this to ashes. They could not believe how pretty it was “and to think we were going to burn this!!” they said…

You guys are the best…

Nice bowl and clean finish. Particularly nice sapwood/heartwood on this cherry. Out of curiosity did you turn the piece green or was it completely dry?
Cheers,
Richard
