    Wobble bowl

    This came out of some silver maple from ebay. I wanted a Calabash type bowl and the bottom sorta came out that way. My son said it reminds him of some Weebles he saw in an antique store . I knew we should have raised canarys . 8x3 and about 1/8th thick. 2 coats of wipe-on Poly so far. Hope ya all like it

    Very nice, Jim. I gotta try one of those roly-poly bowls myself one of these days.

    Royal, Weebles wobble but they don't fall down.

    Well of course they don't go boom. They don't fall down. You have to fall down to go boom. Are you not paying attention, or what?

    I led a very sheltered life Made it to 60 before I had to ask! No fun if don't go BOOM

    When you mention Wobbly, it brings back memories of shipmates come back from a "run" to shore before the ship moved on! REAL wobbly coming down the pier And they did go BOOM
