    Cherry Bowls

    Here are a couple of cherry bowls I also did this weekend. One is 6" across and 4" high and the other is 7 1/4" across and 4 7/8" high. Both finished with antique oil and wipe on poly. Poly is still drying.

    Very nice Bernie! I love turning cherry - great wood to work with! Really like the dark color of the second bowl - a nice aged look for cherry!

    Looking good, Bernie. I like the form of the first bowl and the color of the second one. Both are real nice, though.

    Bowl #1 is my fav, I really like the color. And, judging by the pictures you need to cut back on your yogurt consumption and increase your fiber.

    Thanks everyone. The picture of the second bowl was done quickly to show a friend of mine. Didn't want to handle it so just took them there. Chris I only eat one yogurt a day but the wife eats a couple of them. They also make good finish holders when doing small amounts.I found out though don't put lacquer in them or you will have a lap full.

    Very Nice Bernie!

    How long to wait to after the antique oil before you put on the poly?

    Thanks Pete. I think it was about 3 days but it was sitting by a furnace duct. Didn't realize it till then but didn't seem to do any harm. Normally I wait about a week before I do.
