Redheart Bowl

2 coats of tung oil letting it set a couple days before I sand it more and run the poly.

I didnt see those lines untill i did the tung oil :(
but all in all, Im pretty happy with it:)

Really nice.

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

wow, that's a pretty awesome looking bowl. I love the colour and the style. Awesome work man.

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

Really nice bowl and the colors are super.
Note: If you didnít, bring a light parallel with the turning and wet the turning with mineral spirits (even a flashlight since it only needs to be on a minute or less). It will show up almost any scratch from the sandpaper. Overhead light wonít cast the shadows you need to see them.

I have a Variable speed motor controller, with fwd,rvs and jog. I let Swriz use it to see if he could use it on his lathe. not sure if it will work or not. It is an industrial model for 220/110 but I dont know if he can use it or not. If not I want it back lol!
