That looks great!!! I love the rounded top edges and the finish looks flawless. The shape of the bowl is very pleasing to look at too. Great work.

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

Quite a few nights of sanding to get it that way. Thanks for the compliments, it means a lot.
