I grew impatient and turned a green blank of Ambrosia Maple thinking I could just dry it out.. It promptly cracked. Then I turned another green blank very thin, and it promptly warped. My Spock brain knew that this would happen, but the Captain Kirk in me went ahead and did it anyway. The lesson I learned from this debacle is listen to your Spock brain. Makes sure it’s the old Nimoy Spock though when he wore the blue shirt - not that new shit. Anyway, I finished the warped bowl with wipe-on polyurethene. It looks heinous. It’s shaped like an egg now. Here’s the warped bowl sitting atop the cracked bowl.
