My brother just purchased his first house. Up in northern Ohio. It’s a 100 year old farm house and I thought this bowl would be a nice house warming gift.
It was also my first time turning Cherry. I found that your tools had better be VERY sharp or the short grain fibers (end grain) will tear instead of slice. This led to a lot of sanding to finish it up. The finish is one coat of Tung Oil and a couple of coats of satin poly.
