    Oak Bowl With Torched Base

    About a month ago a friend who is on the local Animal Rescue League's board asked me to donate a bowl for their annual auction. I haven't turned much this year, but I did find a good sized bowl from my stash to give to her. It's oak and I left the bottom a bit rough and then torched it. It's about 10" in diameter and 4" tall. I left a foot to lift it off the table a bit to show the burnt base. Finished with 5 coats of my homebrew danish oil. This is the second year I've donated for the auction and I hope it will help feed a few pets for a day or two. Comments and critques are encouraged.

    Excellent, Jeff. A doggie bowl that doesn't look like a dog dish. Bonus! I hope it brings in lots of bucks at the auction.
