I don't know what to say other than beautiful.
Great work.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Looks good to me. What's not to like?

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

If you will notice,there are two places in the bottom of the bowl,and both are loose.Also on the side there is one and I had to stop thinning the side walls,or that piece would have come out.Now a more experienced turner would know how to fix.I don't have that many bowls turned as to know how to work around this;Mack

It's a great looking bowl. I know, as woodturners we would like to get the shape better but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.
Loose knots are easy to fix. If they fit pretty well and won't fall out some thin CA glue dripped in will usually work. If there's much of a gap I follow the thin with Medium. I may pack the gap with sawdust. I prefer dark sawdust like ebony. coffee grounds also work.
If there is a large gap use epoxy and add a little color to it. I use black shoe dye mixed into the epoxy but I mix it so it's dark but translucent. That way it pickes up the color of the knot. Sometimes it's better to actually push the know out, cover the backside with masking tape, put some epoxy in and then put the knot in. When it drys you have a solid knot.
