Very nice. I like the grain on this and the form.
That bowl looks ready for popcorn!

Anybody can become a woodworker, but only a Craftsmen can hide his mistakes!

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

I used a product called,"General Finishes" salad bowl finish.I bought it at Woodcrafters in Greenville S.C. for $10.99. I put on three coats,and used four o steel wool between each coat.I let set for eight hours between coats.Hope that answers your question;Mack
