I'm always amazed just how many 'curls' are left over after making even a small bowl like this one.

Sweetgum
5.5" x 2.25"
Friction Polish

I love sweet gum. Once made a coffee table (with some help from FIL) out of it. I have NEVER gotten friction polish to shine like that.
Beautiful bowl.

I'm using equal parts of BLO/Shellac/Denatured alcohol.
I thought it was going to be a quick finish. But I've really got to
put some time in on it with several coats.... wait, more coats...etc.
