Actually it isn’t weird at all. I like it. My interest is in the wood. Is it really Bradford pear and where did you get a piece big enough to turn this bowl? Very nice job and beautiful wood sir. Cheers

Thanks for the feedback guys, always appreciate hearing responses since I don’t know anyone locally who turns or does woodworking.
T.D. : Yep, bradford pear. It was given to me by someone clearing out some unwanted trees. This bowl came from the bottom section of trunk and so was the largest.
Robbie: I checked out a few of your videos, nice work :)
I sanded to 280, applied a liberal amount of boiled linseed oil, sanded with 400. After that I buffed it with clean paper towels until I stopped getting oil on them. Then I moved on to the Beal buffer. The bowl got both red and white compounds. It also has a final coating of renaissance wax. The wet sanding works nicely to fill in tiny defects or pores missed after all that sanding, but I think the BLO needs to be thinned down in order to not clog the paper so quickly. I’ll try that next time.
