Oversize turning (part2)

Just getting a chance to upload the final photos of the big bowl, which was given over as a present for the wedding we went to this weekend.  Hopefully they will be pleased…  Here it is after a fine sanding and a light oiling.

The home mixed oil is bringing out the fantastic swirly depths of the grain.

Off the lathe and unscrewed from the ply face plate, it is still a bit mouldy under there (as expected).  I cut the little centring protrusion off with a small flush-cut saw, and clean it up with a quick sand down.
