first pierced bowl (update)

I recently posted a pic of the rough version of my first pierced bowl with a base that was a little too large (but not attached yet) and pretty much everybody including me thought the base was too big.

SO ... I turned the base down, glued it on, put on 5 coats of shellac, and here she be ...

I'm not quite done with the finishing so this is just slightly rough. The last coat of shellac will be buffed smoother than this. The bowl is cypress and the base is padauk.

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

Nice combo.
Is it too late to put wood back on..?


...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?

That's a lot better. The base isn't overwhelming. Nice piece.
