A Bowl

In keeping with my ongoing project to learn wood turning, I set myself a faceplate turning exercise. Here's the result.

That bowl profile is my recollection of a bowl that I made in grade 7 or 8 wood shop at school. It's not a bad outcome for a first attempt after about fifty years. I think the one I made in school was better, though.

I've stained it on the lathe with Minwax's Cherry 235 Wood Finish, after applying Minwax's Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner. I'll give it a few coats of tung oil for a final finish.
