    oak bowl

    This oak burl was found by me at the job site. It was on a tree that had to come down to get the septic in .Luckily i spotted it before they hauled it off. It is 10" at the widest and 2" deep. Finish is danish oil, lacquar and hit with steel wool, as i didn't like the high gloss.
    The first pic is the bowl with out knocking the finish down.

    Very cool, Steve. I like the way the bark is included in the sides of the bowl.

    That is a fine looking piece. The wood is beautiful.

    Yes, I meant to add, I agree with you on the finish. I like the less shinny one a lot more. Looks rich.

    Lovely wood made into a lovely piece of workmanship. I am not a fan of the high shine so the finished article is much more to my personal taste. Amazing what people get rid of isn't it?

    WOW!
    That's a real beauty Steve.
    Knocking down finish will it that natural warm wood look and feel.
