    Mother's Day Gift - "Router Bowl"

    After my Mom saw my first router bowl, she was very interested in what other things I could do, and dropped not a few hints that she'd love one! Very subtle...

    This piece is made of mahogany and cherry, and measures 11.5" x 6.5" x 2". I finished it with BLO, dewaxed shellac, and three coats of gloss Arm-R-Seal. I'm pretty happy with the way this one came out, and my Mom was absolutely thrilled!!

    Thanks for looking!

    - Keith

    Great job, Keith. I really like the shape, too. It adds a certain "how'd he do that?" to the bowl.
