New Commissioned Turnings
Well finally got some turning in this week after being on the road over a month. These are commissioned pieces that a lady wanted. The first being a cheese platter with dome which is 15 1/4" X 2", a Elm salad bowl which is 13" X 5", and a Oak change bowl for her husband which is 7 1/2" X 3 1/2". The salad platter and salad bowl are finished with gloss waterlox. The first coat was flooded on each piece. The last 4 coats were thin and wiped on. The Oak bowl is finished with Anitque oil and still needs a couple of more coats. She agreed to $250 for the 3. I was happy with that.
