cherry bowl

This bowl isn't finished. I will probably do some carving on the lip. I took a photo to show the black patch. I'm trying out a new product that may go on the market. It's called Polyfil. It's different than epoxy or Inlace. I'm too new with it to comment other than that it's definitely different than the other two. this is a cherry bowl about 9" across.

Looks like the makings of a nice bowl. Let us know how the new crackfiller works out.

Nice looking bowl John. I like the slant of the rim - looks good. Interested to hear how the fill works. Will it be availble in diffferent colors or just black?

I'm going to ask him about colors. I'm also going to suggest that he put more black tint in the mix if he can. When thin the black appears green. It would probably stay black looking down to 3/8" or so. I'll run a test on that.
The test I just ran told me that this stuff is way more flexible than epoxy and still polishes up to a good shine.
