    Birdseye Redwood bowl

    This is another chunk of some very old, dusty, crummy, dry as a bone stuff from my BIL. What a surprise inside I'm still struggling with the bottom thickness when doing a recessed foot and was darn lucky the bottom of this one held out 1/8" all the way around 6x3 finished in Mylands and 2 coats of Ren wax. I really worked on my sanding technique this time and was really happy with the results Good and bad needed

    That looks sweet, Jim. I'd say your extra effort on the sanding paid off.

    You haven't arrived until you have turned one with the inside diameter larger than the outside.
    Very nice bowl, glad it stayed intact.
    Beautiful color, grain and finish.

    Beautiful piece of timber!
    You sure did it justice.
