    DNW bowl

    Alright wasn't gonna post this but after reading all the comments in the off topic section, about not participating decided why not. The bowl is about 12 x 4 or there abouts. Finish is just 2 coats of BLO. Waiting for it to cure, then i'll wax and buff only. This is the only thing I've done lately, but do have some things in the works. So for now this is it.

    Awesome grain on there. I like you you didn't over decorate the bowl and let the wood shine through.

    Did you have much problem with tearout on the grain changed?

    Ryan there was a little, but not much. This turned really nice, considering the wild grain. Sanded real easy to. Don't know what it is but wish I had a bunch more.

    That sure came out nice and will be even nicer after a polish. I like your double ring bottom. It's a great piece of wood and you did it proud. Thanks for sharing.

    Looks like it might be some kind of elm from here, or maybe big leaf maple? Whatever it is, it's got some nice figure, and I like what you ended up with. And I agree with Ted...the double bead on the bottom is a great touch.

    This piece of wood came from a guy I know. It was in his wood pile and he had no idea what it was. ( he had bought a load) When I saw it I thought it looked like it could be something nice, So I told him I was gonna steal it, and I did.

    I am glad you showed this bowl to us. As mentioned above, it was a good idea to keep it simple and let the gorgeous wood speak.
