    Cherry Burl Bowls

    My dad dropped off a cherry burl in September. I finally had a chance today to finish two bowls roughed out in September.

    They are not coated in these pictures. I have since decided to use salad bowl finish and have applied one coat. I will post again when the finish is complete.

    Bowl #1 - the first picture - is about 9" diameter and 2" high. Wall thickness is about 1/4".

    Bowl #2 - the second and third pictures - is about 10" diameter and 3 1/2" high. Wall thickness is about 1/4".
