Wood Turning

Sassafras Heart Bowl

First of all I have only been turning since the end of November 2012. A friend of mine gave me two 6 foot logs of Sassafras heart, was cut down several years ago, all that was/is left is the heart and all of the sap wood had rotted away. This is the largest bowl I have ever made. It is finished right now with brushing lacquer cut 50/50 with lacquer thinner. I’m going to sand it down again and try to get a better finish on it. Please feel free to give me feedback.
