It looks awesome to me. Great job.
It's a good feeling making something that's isn't working, work.

Anybody can become a woodworker, but only a Craftsmen can hide his mistakes!

If it's just the warping you are worried about, don't. We've all had those pieces and that's a nice looking piece.

A little warp never hurt anything, adds character and an artistic approach.

If anyone questions you about the warp, tell them you planned it that way.

Harrison, at your service!

...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?

Nothing wrong with a little warp Big Mack. As long as it doesn't crack, it's fine.

Big Mack,
If you really want to see a bowl warp, turn one thin, about 1/8 - 3/16". It will look like a gravy boat after about a day. Based on green wood of course.

Really nice.

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