    Burr Oak Bowl

    It's just a little 6" bowl, but it's one of my favorites for some reason...will probably end up in the house somewhere. Finish is danish oil buffed with a little paste wax.

    Critiques and commetns please

    Very nice, Jeff. I can understand why it's one of your favorites. I see the rim looks a bit wavy. Did you turn it to final dimensions wet then just let it do its thing?

    Yes it was green (about 2 months from cut, but sealed with anchorseal) when I turned it. I put it in a paper bag for about 3wks after checking it every few days...not much movement other than the rim, which I think gives it some character.

    Yeah, I like the wavy rim too, Jeff. It seems to fit in with the sort of rustic look many of your other pieces have.

    I like it myself. Simple and lets the wood do the talking...Very hard too do.

    You are right Jeff. The wavy rim does add character. Even without the wavy rim, the bowl has plenty of character. Gorgeous wood.
