    Small Birch Bowl

    Here is a small Birch bowl I finished awhile ago. It's about 2"x5" and finished with a few coats of salad bowl finish. I made it for Angie's dad who is a retired carpenter who likes doing small wood projects still. He lives about 3 hours from us so we send him letters and small gifts since we don't get to see him much. I had the pith in the center so it has a nice size crack in it, but that's because I roughed it before I got my bandsaw so I just threw the log on there and went to town I filled the crack with ca glue. It has some tool marks, not sure if they're visible in the pics or not, but I'm still learning Any critiques/comments are more than welcome!

    Looking good, Westley. Looks like a nice piece of wood, and the form is nice, too. Experience, time, patience, and sandpaper will make getting rid of the tool marks in the next one that much easier.

    Nice bowl Westley! I am sure it will be appreciated! Only advice is to turn lots of bowls - it gets easier the more you do!
