    ......and more bowls.......

    This Arkansas walnut bowl measures 13" x 3 1/2"....THANKS MARK C.!!! Rim is 3/8", and thins to 1/8" about half way down walls thru the bottom. A neighbor gave me a cord or so of firewood a month ago, this is my "THANK YOU" gift to them.

    This elm bowl is 7" x 2". I left the rim thick at 3/4" to show off the pretty wood. Walls and bottom taper down to a still hefty 3/8".

    Finally, a maple bowl. This one measures 7" x 2 1/4" with 1/4" walls. I took my burner to the rim to try something different.

    All finished with multiple coats of Minwax wipe-on poly, then buffed.

    All comments AND critiques welcome.

    All three look great, Barry. I'd say the maple is my favorite, but they're all keepers.

    Excellent work, and the finish is great. Can you tell me what is this finish you use, 'wipe on poly'. Is this a wax, or a hard lacquer finish?
    all the best
