I finished my first ever turned hollow form bowl today. American Walnut with rare-earth magnets inset. It is just under 7.5 cm high 16.5 cm across with an opening of 7.6 cm.

I Like the lines of that and the decoration.nicely done!:2tsup::2tsup::2tsup:

Just on the point of finish, I can see some marks around the equator region. Just wondering if the wood is difficult to sand?

Chrome, 'rare-earth magnets' is it going to have a second piece floating above it?

Now there's an interesting idea.... :rolleyes: :D

artme... the marks only show up in the photos, not really seen by the eye. :D
