Nothing special about the bowl, it was an exercise in finishing. Sanded to 280, then applied Bullseye Shellac as a sanding sealer. Sanded that down, using old paper. Once the sealer coat was smooth I started with 120 and worked my way up to 400 grit. Applied 5 coats of Deft Spray Lacquer (rattle can) and here it is. The bowl is 6” by about 2 1/4”. I really like the way this finish worked out.
