    One More

    This started out to be a bark edge bowl but the bark was too loose to stay attached so I peeled it off and turned it as a plain NE.

    But, it was so plain that I decided to enhance the edge a bit. So I burned lines about 1/8" apart all the way around the rim. I like it and it's led to another idea for a bowl. This stuff is really fun!

    It's Sweetgum, 10 3/8" x 9 1/8" x 4 1/8" and again finished with witch's brew and Beall buffed.

    Cody - I like the bowl and also what you did for a rim treatment - but I have no idea what kind of wood it is. Looking forward to the next one!

    Clever idea on the rim Cody, Looks like stitching. Was that the intention?

    That's a nice one! The rim design looks as good if not better than a bark edge.

    Great Save Cody!
