Le bol est finis. I added a thin coat of wax and am hoping that the South Florida heat on the lenai will melt it in a bit.
We have a bunch of blanks that we got this weekend. I need to figure out the next project (either a slightly personal salad bowl, or a much bigger family salad bowl). And to OldNFO comment - there was a metric ton of wood shavings. the bowl started as a square blank and so I had to round it off. The blanks we got this weekend are round so there should (hopefully) be less cleanup.
Oh, and if you're into wood turning, I can recommend Steve Parker's Wood Turning Blanks web site.
