    Cherry Salad Bowl Set

    Well have a request for a cherry salad bowl set. She wants a main bowl and 8 small bowls. She agreed to $510 for the set. Here is the start. The main bowl is 12" across and 3 3/4" deep. The small bowls will be 7 1/4" across and 2 3/4" deep. These are being finished with Mike Mahoney's walnut oil. I really like the feel and the satin look.

    Sweet. Sounds like a good client who might be back for more products.

    Grats on the sale . Those can be hard to come by today. I like the matte finish too . I have one of Ray Key's DVD's. Lord help the man, he is as dry a narrator as a dead camel's hump, but he likes the dull look. That hourglass shaped mill I just sold had the same look. The grain really comes out.

    Thanks again. Well I sent her the same picture to see if that is what she was wanting. She said they were beautiful. She wanted to know how much time I would need if she wanted two more sets. I told her probably 3 months. I need to round up the wood, rough turn, dry, re-turn, and then finish. She said that is great and would let me know. I think I like this.

    Is she reselling them or giving them away?

    Thanks again for the kind comments.

    Doug I am not sure what she is doing with them. She didn't say and I didn't ask. I figured my price and if she does sell them and make more I figure I got a fair price on my end. I charged $45 a piece for the small ones and $150 for the big one. I am turning handles on the serving utensils I got from CSUSA. They cost me $7.99 and I am charging her $30 for them with turned handles. She like them.
