Excellent job keeping the line of the bowl through that side bead -- having to stop and restart the path of the gouge as you step around the bead is a lot trickier than I expected it to be the first couple of times I tried it. (Still haven't gotten it to where I'm happy with it.)

Jerry,
I have a large set of bowl jaws to grab the rim of the bowl. Then I turn off the tenon and finish the bottom. The finish I use most of the time is brushing lacquer from home depot. I use my old white tube socks to wipe it on. 3-4 coats, then I hit it on the three buffing wheels (Beall buffing system) mounted on a big Jet buffer motor.
Mike Hawkins;)

Well it should have one. The shape is great with a good continuous curve. The beads are clean and well spaced. The grain orientation is excellent. No sanding or turning marks and the finish is good. Mighty fine work
