My first PIC post *PIC*

>Well here is my first item that I am showing to everyone. I am quite pleased with it. It is a gift for a friend for her wedding. They asked for no gifts but oh well.

It is Spalted Birch sanded to 1500 Micron and buffed with... are you ready for this... an orbital palm buffer. I used the cotton cloth and applied the compound and held on tight. Came out pretty well. It is approx. 9" x 2.5"

I made a doughnut chuck for this bowl so I could finish the bottom but it tried to slip on me. I didn't want to secure too tightly as I was afraid I would dent the wood. Any recommendations as what to use to help secure it?

Comments welcome, input appreciated and feedback a must.
