spalted maple bowl, need help *PIC*

Steve Kubien
>Hi everybody,

I am looking for some helpful critiques of this little guy. 4.5" wide and about 3" high, walls are not consistent but start at 1/4" and are just over 5/16" near the base. Finished with 3 coats of Deft semi-gloss and EEE Ultrashine. How did I do on the form and the proportions? Close? Right on? Trash and burn? I had some trouble with a crack forming and a high-pitched sound which made me think it was time to call it done. I CA'd it and sanded to 600. Should I have kept going to get it thinner or did I do right? I know the pictures are worth squat but that is something I will tackle another day.
