This is a bowl I turned last night on a friend’s lathe. This is the first bowl I’ve turned using a vacuum chuck and can’t wait to be able to get one myself. It really makes it simple. One of the coolest things about the bowl is the fact that it was so rough cut that we couldn’t even tell it was figured. After getting it turned, I sanded to 400 and applied a sanding sealer / danish oil mixture. Waited for about 20 minutes then hit it with some 4/0 steel wool. I will wait till the spring / summer to lacquer it as I need it to warm up a bit I think. Thanks for looking!
