Really nice. Grain turned out fantastic.

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

Jeff that oak has some crazy stuff in it. Nice job capturing all of it in your bowl. Looks good.

Quite an interesting pattern to the Oak with the placement of the sapwood in the middle. Interesting indeed. Great bowl!

How do you like the wide on poly for your finishes? I usually use 5-8 coats with 24hrs. or so in between each coat and then a final buffing with my Beall wheels ... kinds makes all the difference in the world for me.
