a large(ish) cherry bowl

I’m fond of this large bowl turned from an 8” x 3” kiln-dried cherry blank. I finished it on the lathe running at about 800 rpm with several layers of EEE wax followed by Shellawax. As you can see, I’m still struggling with how to turn off the tenon and clean up the bottom. The bottom is intolerably ugly why you take a close look. The tool marks are glaring despite lots of sanding. Nevertheless, I feel like I’m making progress. This was the largest bowl I’ve done and I think the most elegant shape. Some unfortunate family member is getting this for Christmas!
