    2 different pieces

    1st one. This is purple heart and cherry 10insx7ins finish is wood wax 22.

    Idea for this came from an article in the woodturing magazine, (can not remember the turner) Oak split bowl 7insx4.5insx5ins finish is scorched and lime waxed with 2 more coats of paste wax.

    Nice work. That second one turned after it was cut and put together? Scary!

    Thank you for your comments. Paul the parts were glued together with brown paper inbetween them it was then turned, pegs were turned and assembled, after a lot of sanding to clean glue and paper off.

    Thank's for your comments Rob I put a screw chuck in the top then I trued up the bottom and slightly dished it, a scrap bit of wood was hot glued to it and turned a tenon on it. Placed in chuck then turned the bowl .

    John, those are amazing! I might show the first one to my advanced class of turners and make that one of their assignments. That second one is so unique!
