    Bowl

    Well as I said in the other thread the wife said she wanted a bowl for candy to sit on the coffee table. So who am I to argue. She picked out the piece she wanted and I went to town. It is 7" across and 2" high. It has a coat of oil to pop the grain. The wood is Redwood. When dry I will put a couple of coats of shellac then General Finishes WTF. The wood is beautiful and full of grain movement.

    Very pretty bowl, Bernie, but I think the black pedestal is a bit too much.

    Is that some of the wood from Jim Burr?

    Bernie,

    Pretty bowl. Then when the candy is gone it can hold your Bowling Ball.

    I know. That was a doctor Bradley joke. That is what all of the kids in the neighborhood would have said anyway.

    Enjoy,

    Very nice bowl, Bernie. I wish I could turn Redwood, but the LOML is very allergic to it. Beautiful wood.
