Wally, critique from thread below *PIC*

Ken DeMarco
Here is the picture of a hollow form I did a while ago, cherry turned wet and allowed to warp, I really like the shape it took and the feel of the grain and the ripple it has where there is curl. the biggest problems I had where the discoloration of the sap wood and gitting the base just right after turning it around. ( i used a jam chuck. it is 6" tall 6" wide 3/4" opening base 1 1/2" Sanded to 800 grit, dried for a month then hand sanded with 6 and 800 grit finished with 5 coats watco then buffed with beal system I look foward to hearing your comments, and like I said I am looking for an honest critique. any questions let me know.
