First turning of this year. Made for our club competition.

Field Maple and measures 7 1/4" X 2" and has some light ripple in the bottom, sanded to 600grit and then wiped over with water and given a final sand of 600grit to de-nibed. Chestnut spirit stain applied with paint brushes and acrylic satin varnish was used as a sealer because I ran out of proper sealer. Final coats are Acrylic gloss lacquer. I left the bottom of the foot as plain wood.

Started this Tuesday and only just finished and ready for the competition is tomorrow, I like to cut it fine and if any stage goes wrong I go into panic mode

C & C welcome

Thank you Chas. All we have are three section, Novice, Senior and Enhanced. No set theme this will be in the enhanced section but next year I might try the novice section :lol: seriously I probably have a go at just the senior which means just turning without things like the addition of colour just for a change.

I love this bowl. The colour is so vivid with that great shine and I like the way you've bled them into each other. The red accent is really good in my opinion. Bear in mind I only ever use an oiled finish, but this bowl is making me rethink that!
