I still need to put finish on this bowl.
I turned it from a chunk of freshly cut cherry I found in the trash in our building. Halfway into hollowing it out on the lathe I saw some rather large checks beginning to appear. As much as I wanted to keep it on the lathe and remove more material, the threat of the chunk exploding in my face at 1600 rpm was far too real.
What to do?
I had time. And a few podcasts to catch up on. Maybe I'll just start walking away at it with some carving gouges.
I should really finish this thing. Will post pics when I get up the initiative.
