Finally... one that did not turn to firewood *PIC*

>I finally got a finished bowl that did not turn to garbage or have the bottom cut through....
Pens I can do... but bowls are still on the learning curve for me...
It is far from perfect, but good enough that we will use it for a nice candy dish for Christmas.....
Dry Black Locust (can you say "let's cut some concrete with a dull pen knife")
Finish is a couple of coats of Deft Brushing Lacquer polished with Micro Mesh
It was coming out sooo nice I decided to really go nuts and experiment with some crushed pink coral on the rim... there are a couple of little voids, but on this bowl I am not going to worry... I did find out that I can do it..
