Using scraps of Pecan and Black walnut a friend brought me I tried to create something special… I am not real happy with the outcome. The wood had lots of flaws that I could not sand off.. I also sprayed it with laquer to see if it brought out the grain.. I don’t think it did.. But it is still a unique bowl

Flaws create charactor. If the walls are still thicker then 3/16 you can still do some power sanding or a very light touch with a round scraper which is sharp.

Keep up the turning

Nice bowl Nick. I personally can’t see any flaws. We tend to be more critical of our own work than others might. I have a few Pecan logs that have been in the shop for the past 5-8 years, I’m going to turn something, not large enough for a bowl, but could be some nice boxes :-)
