    Great looking bowl Chas. I like that wood, form and finish. Is the chestnut oil like our walnut oil? Just curious. Happy New Year.

    Ohhh, sorry about that Bernie, a bit misleading, it is in fact a Brand name, it's a blend of Tung oil and various other oils and additives to speed drying.

    Prosperous new year to you all, must away and now and clean up the shed so that I can burn some of the debris that is collecting before it gets too unfriendly outside. (15.45 hrs here)

    Yes it is, it is one of the lesser figured pieces gifted to me over Christmas by a UK Forum Member (a whole car trunk full) this is a piece of it in Burr form.

    Working this and several other pieces is awaiting the purchase of a bowl saver with my Christmas monies.

    Chas, good looking bowls with a very nice wide rim, lovely wood, always a surprise to discover what showes up when turning a nice piece of wood.
    Good work Chas
