Sweet Gum 5 1/2" x 2 1/4" Friction Finish
The last picture is before the finish is applied. Sanded down to 800 grit.
This had rot on the knot on the outside... Dremeled it out and fill it with Black Graphite epoxy.

Very nice. I especially like your dremel/infill. đź‘Ť
I don't know if I'd use it again? This was designed for Graphite Golf shafts. It has a very long drying time. This means it has some elasticity to it... (can handle impact). But it didn't take to sanding and polishing very well. Maybe very small cracks? I've got another bowl I did at the same time. Have not turned it as of yet. We'll see how that turns out.

Another option - if you don't plan on dropping/throwing the bowl a lot (or hitting it with golf clubs) and the impact resistance is just incidental - is picking up a little black oxide or black mica pigment (dirt cheap on ebay, and a little goes an extremely long way) and mix it into any old epoxy (the BSI clear 30 min is my default because it's versatile, but for black I imagine you could get away with just about anything except maybe the white pastes - which probably also wouldn't polish very nicely).

Exactly. I've thought about getting some of the years, but just have not done so. My wife even mentioned getting, "That acrylic stuff." So, I pushed that statement and said, "You mean spend some good money and get a nice pressure pot system?" LOL

This just so happened to be the stuff I had on and that wasn't clear because I don't have anything to had color to clear epoxy.
