Sanding A Bowl Made On The Ringmaster Lathe

Just got higher speed internet and had to see if I could upload a video faster than before. I recorded this one with a quick digital camera set up  just to test my internet speed with no intentions of publishing it so my camera was set too low to show me with my dust mask on and  didn't   properly show the bowl at the end. Anyway  it turned  out not all that bad even though my arm blocked  the view more than it should have .

Wife called on the intercom while I was recording . .  lol . . . but I just kept on  going and speeded up and still got in the house in time to answer the call .

Here is the address to the  video

Interesting that you sand a glue joint so soon after glue up. I have found in flat work that the glue line swells andfinish sanding too soon allows the wood to shrink down at glue line later , leaving a dimple.

    Have you noticed anything like this in your work?

Never noticed it on any of them but I only sand in that short a time frame once in a while . I perfer to leave them overnight.
