      Odie when you use the three step buff , do you have trouble with the white getting in cracks and grooves. I skip that step as used once and spent the day with toothbrush removing white sh@t!

      by the way congrats and beautiful. I have a couple hundred maple Burl blanks I need to start turning. Waiting for the day for work to slow down.

      Odie, really like how the curve is continued through the rim. Great job.

      @Glenn Lefley .....Howdy Glenn, and thank you. :D There are times when I do skip the White Diamond, but only on the worst of bowls with excessive gaps and voids. I do find that the WD is a beneficial step in the process, so if I can keep it, I do. Like you, I'm using a stiff toothbrush, and a dental pick to clean up the white that gets into the voids. If you use a strong blast of air, that is also helpful. Also, there are times I've used a fine little artist's brush and apply more Danish oil over the white in the cracks......this hides it pretty well. The real trick here is to use the WD very very sparingly. Sometimes don't even apply any and just go with the residue left over with the last buffing job. -----odie-----

      @William Rogers me to. It’s as if the rim was added after the bowl was turned.

      @William Rogers ....Yes sir......that is important. Just doesn't look right if the curve isn't maintained. :( -----odie-----

      @odie I thing I will try and put the wd back in my schedule. I used it only once when I got the system And got mad when I spent the day cleaning it out.

      @odie 1894...boy that's an old burl! :D Congrats on the quick $$$ sale. Re: the continuous curve through raised band - it's well done.....but IMHO, I think the band should imitate the curve of the bowl and not be perpendicular to the table. Just a suggestion for the next masterpiece. ;)

      @Tom Gall......I've done this shape before, but not this far "raised". While I turned this one, I can remember contemplating just what you're suggesting, Tom, but decided against it. I believe my reasoning at that moment was it would have shortened the extension more than I wanted to go.....However, I consider it a good suggestion, and when I decide to do this particular shape again, I may give it a go! :D -----odie-----
