    Both bowls were sanded to 400 grit, a couple of coats of Watco ‘Natural’ Danish Oil, at least 6 coats of Minwax Gloss Wipe-on Poly and then buffed.

    As always – your comments and/or suggestions are appreciated!

    Thanks for looking!

    Hi Steve ,
    I am trying to figure out which one I like most. Tough call but I think it would be the rice bowl due to the color difference and lower profile. Nice work.

    Good stuff, Steve. I'd have to agree with Shaz...I think the rice bowl is my favorite.
