    Cherry Bowl

    A nice little bowl from an old blank I found while cleaning the garage... 10"d x 5.5"h... finished with Mahoney's Utility Finish (Walnut Oil), then waxed with my own concoction of Mahoney's and beeswax. The wood was given to me by an arborist friend and came from one of the nearby military installations. Thanks for looking. C&C welcome.

    Ooh, I like it. Gorgeous wood, and the extra deep rim is a nice change-up from the norm.

    I'm with Vaughn.

    That is one heck of a nice looking piece of wood that was put to good use.

    Enjoy,

    Thanks for the kind words. I've been trying to develop a form that can be easily hefted by arthritic fingers. This broad band with a pronounced ledge seems to have the right ergonomic feel...as tested by the LOML....and it's a little different from the norm.
