    B.O.W.L.S. Bowl

    There was a post on another forum where I hang out about a woman battling cancer. This was made specifically for her to represent a pool of water with waves. It is my first attempt at airbrushing. I hope it lifts her spirits a little. It's about 7" diameter finished with danish oil, buffed and waxed.

    Very nice, Don. I like the concept, and I think you made it work.

    Really nicely done. I'm sure that'll lift her spirits over and over again.
    I love making wood spin while I poke it with sharp metal objects.
