Mike, as everyone else has stated -- this is drop-dead gorgeous.
I'm having trouble figuring out the shape, the pix are telling me several different things and I can't get it unscrambled.
Does the rim (which you decorated beautifully, btw) overhang the walls on the inside? Are the walls uniform thickness from rim to the base?
The rim does overhang the walls on the inside. If you look at the first pic, The outside of the bowl is turned to finish, the rim is turned with a slight undercut. At this point I keep undercutting the rim so I can end up with thinner walls. I leave the walls on these bowls about a 1/4" thick. The bottom is probably closer to 1/2". These bowls are decent size and with the heavier rim, I don't want a real thin wall. When you pick it up, it feels good weightwise. The walls are uniform from just under the rim to where the bottom flat starts.
One last question - what finish did you use? (And did you use oil before the top coat? Okay, that's two final questions
For a finish, I put one coat of shellac on it just for the heck of it. Then a few coats of lacquer wiped on. And lastly, I buff about everything on a beale three wheel system on a jet 1 1/2 hp buffer.
