>Well, I finally finished the bowl I roughed out at The Gathering back in April. As those of you who there might remember, Lan Brady gave me a blank of "mineralized" black walnut so I could try out Terry's VB lathe. After playing around throwing shavings across the shop, I settled down and, after received some advice from Duane Leach, I roughed this bowl.
Have a look. It wound up being 10 5/8" in diameter and just under 3" deep. So far, I have 3 coats of Minwax Tung Oil Finish on it.
I have to thanks Lan, for the blank, and Duane for the advice.
And, thanks to everyone for looking.
