Well done, Troy. Looks like you kept it from cracking, which means that you turned it slow enough to not generate heat while sanding. -or- used a very lite touch when sanding or sanded wet. Which was it, I'm curious... :D

Nice turning Troy :2tsup:

To me, the knot area looks like a puffer fish swimming over a sandy bottom.
