You should make sure you date this piece & keep it so that you can go back some years on & measure your progress.
Nice first well done

Nice work!

I checked out your blog … another way to dry bowl blanks is to soak them in denatured alcohol. A buddy of mine keeps a 5-gallon bucket (with a lid on it) with a couple of gallons of DA. When gets a wet blank or rough-turned bowl, he lets it sit on the alcohol overnight then lets it dry for a day or two before hi finish turns it.

He buys the DNA at an auto-paint supply shop … costs less than the stuff you get at the box stores.
