Note to self don’t stop in the middle of a bowl to sleep. I did the bottom, put a coat of “Crystle Coat” and chucked it up to do the inside in the morning. Came out in the morning and it had cracked/checked in at least three places. Talked to a local turner and he said use this (after you seal the cracks with a thin, wicking CA glue…) a new General waterbased turning finish. After few coats of CA in the cracks, I finished the bowl. Beautiful red…and shiny with the new finish. The checks seem to have stopped. I’ve done a dozen other bowls before this one, but always finished them at one “sitting.”
