Certainly getting back in the swing of things.
Ornamental cherry which once stood in my garden. Turned from the trunk which is only 6" diameter as it was only a young tree. Finished with Acrylic sander sealer and an Acrylic gloss lacquer. Measures 6 1/2" X 4 1/2" X 3 1/2". Managed to lose the bark amongst the shavings so no chance of sticking it back on.

Winging it again then, at least you have not lost the ability to concentrate during your turning sabbatical.

The Cherry is a good choice for that form both in wood characteristics and natural figuring.

Lovely turning Derek. Nice even wall thickness.
I keep one of my early laburnum elongated bowls, with a hump in the thickness, as a teaching aid. It doesn't show but it can definitely be felt.
I'm surprised that the finish seems rather matt after sealing & acrylic gloss, or is that just the photos?
