5-inch diameter walnut bowl that I turned the other day – very simple lines and the wood revealed itself very nicely with a knot offset to one side! Burnished with shavings and then two coats of wipe-on poly applied while the bowl is turning on the lathe; quick and effective!

Nice clean lines. The grain pattern is very easy to look at.

Very nice, Knots always add character to the wood.

Tip: I’ve found that wet sanding with wipe on poly does a good job at filling the grain in Walnut.

Thanks Dusty56 – been doing a bunch of segmented turning lately – a lot like your cutting boards in 3 dimensions!
