I’ve playing with a router cut cherry bowl that’s a bit over 3” deep. I’m at the sanding stage and the inside bottom is driving me nuts. There are what I think are burn marks from the router bit. I’ve tried hand sanding but its deep and too small. Any ideas out there? Thanks!

Ben is right on. Get the sanding gadget. I use it all the time on my router bowls and it works like a charm.

There is one caveat though – don’t push the walls of the bowl against the sander as you would risk making a gouge in the wall by the hard portion of the tool.
