I finally got the cherry burl bowls finished. The finish really made the character pop as everyone said would happen in my previous post.
The first two pictures shows the burl with my chain saw. The second picture shows the natural place to cut the burl - I'll let the picture speak for itself.
The rest are pictures of one of the burl bowls finished. 9" dia x 2 1/2" deep. You can see the knot hole in the fourth picture. I call it level control.
The bowl sold already to one of the women at work. The contribution has been passed on already to Doug Thompson for a 1/2 V and 5/8 V bowl gouges.
The other bowl (not pictured yet) is for my parents for a Christmas present.
