First cherry bowl *PIC*

>I've lurked around here for a while and have had moderate success with bowls. I finally have one that I am willing to post here amongst the incredible work I see here.

Its a cherry bowl with a bit of heart and sapwood. its about 5 1/2" diameter and about 3 inches or so high. A month ago it was a log. I used the alcohol protocol for drying. I had two in this batch. the other one had a bark pocket buried in it that I didnt find till I was well into the roughing process. It dried ok but a catch on the final turnign caused it to take flight in the garage in pieces. This one turned out much better.

My photo skills leave much to be desired so no comments on that. I would however like comments and critiques.

Sanded through 400. Mylands sealer and than 4 or 5 coats of Mylands High build Friction polish.

Thanks
