Finally dusted off the lathe and got to work on some pecan slabs given to me by a fellow woodturner. The slabs were out in the weather for a good while and had splits everywhere but I was able to cut

Just sanded this one out and wiped it with poly

Black walnut bowl about 7” across from a chunk Ricky sent me. Sanded to 320 and Osmo wiped on and buffed. Still needs the backside done.

I’ll let you in on a little secret. It started out with a completely turned in rim. I couldn't get the cut under the rim clean without tearout and was deciding I didnt like the look of it anyway so when I got back from the symposium I cut the rim back so I could get the proper angle to shear the end grain inside. I didnt like a flat rim so I left just a little undercut and gave it the double beveled angle you see. 

Thanks for the compliments, means a lot from you folks!
