I made this a week or so ago for a competition on another forum that is why I could not post until now as it has finished and the results are in.

This one got me the Third place

Turned from Spalted Hornbeam and measures 6" X 2 3/4" .

Turned with a bowl gauge and scraper to finish. Chucking point removed after reversing to leave a slight foot to raise the bowl a little.

Sanded from 240grit down to 600grit then 5 coats of hard wax oil left to dry for 1 week then buffed to a gloss with the chestnut buffing system.

Tried to keep the shape simple to show the grain.
