    Oak wide rim bowl

    Here's dusty cell phone pic (sorry for that) of a wide rim oak bowl that I turned last night. It was DRY and soaked up 2 heavy coats of danish oil...almost can't even tell it has any finish on it in the pic. The little worm hole in the bowl area came complete with a worm! I removed what was left of him and wiped the rest off my arm. Yuck! A few other worm tracks and some spalting make this one look nice, IMHO...Anyway, I hope I can get this piece to stop soaking the oil in and get it finished soon.

    Feel free to comment/critique please.

    Hi,

    Why don't you get a very small funnel and pour the finish oil into the itsy-bitsy hole and let it soak its way out to the surface?

    If you need any other REALLY INTELLIGENT help, just let me know.

    Oh yes, I really like the turning.

    Enjoy,

    Jim

    Looks nice, Jeff. You sure have a way with oak. Have you ever tried fuming it to change the color?

    That's sweet Jeff...little variant from your bread and butter. How big is it and how big is the bowl portion?
