A bowl or three

Three bowls I have done. The ash one is the first one I tried after taking a traveling academy class taught by Mike Young back in 2006. No finish on it, just sanded to something like 1200. The other two are cherry from a tree in my back yard. The one with the bark on had a worm I uncovered. He poked his head up and looked around for a little bit before pfft! He was gone. These are finished with Hut PPP wax finish. I did the cherry ones last December and January.

I like your bowls, and I like the unique coffee-table decor scheme, too!

Thanks. My wife likes Charles Wysocki puzzles and there is drawer in the table full of them that she would rotate seasonally until we tried the old tool theme and like it now. Some are my Dad's from when he was a carpenter in the early 60's and some are yard sale finds.

I like turning bowls with natural defects. They really stand out. Table ain't too bad either. :D

Yep, my wife's Alma mater, Waldron Ar Bulldogs. :) I had to go outta town to find her and she has let me stay for 44 years as of May 8th. She was 18, an "adult", but my parents had to sign for me cause I wasn't 21. :)
