Thread: Redwood Bowl

  1. #1

    Redwood Bowl

    The wife wanted something differant in a bowl. Took her to woodworkers supply and she picked out the blank. With all the wax on it it was hard to tell what she had. From now on if she picks it out I will not dought that the wood will look good. Name on the wood was Redwood about 7 X 2 antque oil but not yet buffed.

    That's some real pretty redwood burl your wife picked out for you. Good job, Dennis.

    Dennis,
    I always take the wife along to help pick out wood and acrylics... she'll spend more money than I will and usually gets some good looking woods and blanks..

    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
