Default Salad Bowl for Shower

Wifey's nephew is getting married in October. We decided on me turning a Cherry salad problem.

Monday night midnight:
Wifey: Have you decided not to turn the salad bowl for Ross and Sheryl?
Me: I am going to turn it....the wedding is in October.
Wifey: I wanted it done for the bridal shower this Saturday.

Tuesday am: Pick three rough turned salad bowl candidates...choose one.
Tuesday pm: Finish Turn bowl, sand and apply first coat of mineral oil.
Wednesday am: Apply second coal of Mineral oil.
Thursday pm: Buff with a clean wheel and take photos.....Wifey gets Bowl and all the goodies wrapped ready to go.
Friday: Wifey is out the door to Aunts house where all the family ladies are meeting/spend the night/ head out 7:00am for shower/north of Philly.
Today: Report that everything is wonderful! A great time and lots of fun.

Included in the bowl were two double sided aprons for kitchen duty (which she made), a pair of cherry salad forks she found at John C Campbell earlier in the summer made by another craftsman, a Yellowheart pan stirrer/spatula I turned, some silicone spatulas, a small end grain cutting board (made by td smart), a small jar of mineral oil/beeswax mix, and the book "Sex Begins in the Kitchen"

Bowl is 11" diameter and 5" tall, Mineral oil/ Buffed

You can tell that Wifey had fun putting this all together.
Here are some pics....more pics in second post.
