Walnut crotch bowl

This is a bowl I started a few weeks ago. It's actually the bowl that is in the Hunter tool video. I had trouble finishing it because my Bush oil was going bad. It was recommended as a good finish but I don't like it. I'll stick with my lacquer.
This started out as a large blank but the wood had developed a check off center that made it about 8" when I cut that out.

That bowl is beyond beautiful. Never heard of the finish but I like lacquer too. The work is great and I especially like the wood. I am empressed, even for you John, I think you have outdone yourself again. Mitch

That is very pretty, a walnut crotch's figure looks 1000 miles deep in person so I can imagine what it looks like holding it and turning it in the light.

John,
Nice job. Whoever thought a bunch of grown men would be oohing and ahhing over some guys crotch. Very pretty wood. I like lacquer also. Easy to work with and quick drying.

good looking bowl, seems lighter then most walnut i've played with.. and your right lacquer is old school, and still tops for a deep gloss..
