    Pierced Bubinga Bowl

    Just a little Bubinga bowl. 5-3/4" by 1-3/4". Pierced with a Dremel and engraving bits. Finished with Seal-A-Cell. The bottom was buffified with white diamond and wax.

    Critiques welcome as always!

    Neal that is really sharp, I like it a lot! Nice work. How do you cut all those holes into it like that?

    Westley, thanks for reminding me. I meant to mentioned that it was pierced with a Dremel. Edited.

    Very crisp detail Neal, a little over the top with the beading for me, the piercing would have looked even more dramatic in a plainer form in my eyes but as they say form is down to individual preference, finish is universal and you look to have nailed that in spades.

    I think it's a great piece, Neil. Chas brings up a valid point about the beading...I wonder if less of it would show off the piercing more. On the other hand, your detailing is always very nice and clean, and a pleasure to see.

    I sure am glad that you love doing this pierced stuff.
