Wow Woody, the grain in this one is spectacular. I really like the little imperfections as well. The exterior shape is also nice. Great job.

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

Ditto on what Kenbo said. I really like the grain. Do you know which elm it is? Did it really stink when turned? Also, I've got to ask, was the piece oriented so the rim was facing the bark side of the log?

Woody that is a nice bowl. Something you could have done to decorate would have been to mix something with the epoxy before filling the crack. I have seen folks use coffee grounds, crushed turquoise or even brass filings from a key making machine. Just a thought. Nice job.

Great job!.I think wood imperfections give the bowl Character,otherwise we might as well make them out of plastic.Itchy

***For the record*** Ive made hundreds of guitar bodies,never put one together and cant play a note.
