Removing tear out

Today I turned a piece of curly maple that some tear out.  I usually coat the piece with wax or some oil but this time I covered the area with an acrylic sanding sealer and wow.  I let the sanding sealer sit for 30 minutes to allow it to penetrate and harden.

1.20 Eight inch Maple Burl Bowl with a dyed face.

This shallow bowl was dyed with a blood red analine dye to bring out the grain in the beautiful maple Burl.  Once dyed it is sanded with 400 grit sand paper.  This process enhances the grain.
