Day 298: Eyes on the prize

More work on LaVonne's bowl today.  The inside was turned, the cracks filled with epoxy and coffee grounds, and sanded with 120 grit sandpaper.  I need to sand through at least 320, turn the bottom, and sand the outside of the bowl before I can start to apply the finish. 

While I was at it I figured I out to make the prize for the recently finished guessing game.  It's a small textured hollow form in Myrtle

I'm not sure how well the texture shows up in these photos.  Like the others I've done recently it's applied with a wire brush following the grain lines.  It looks and feels almost like driftwood, which is exactly what I was going for.  I hope he likes it.
