    Oak Bowl

    Here is a oak bowl I just completed. It is 9" across and 3 3/4" deep. I tried a new approach to finishing. After I sanded it to completion I used 220 and 320 grit dipped in antique oil. I sanded with each grit wiping with shavings after each. It really gave me a smooth surface and when dry it had filled the pores in. I have a second coat on the inside and 3 coats on the outside. The LOML said that was her new popcorn bowl so what can I say.

    Bernie that is fantastic!
    I hope someday to be able to make a set of that type of bowl for chips or popcorn. The shine on it is amazing. Great job and good for your wife on seeing that great piece and keeping it! Don't forget to sign it so someday someone can say, "that was Grandma's bowl and Grandpa made it on his lathe!".
