Would love to know in greater detail how you accomplished this! It’s gorgeous in it’s simplicity.

I turned this bowl on my lathe first from green oak then scrubbed out the grain with a wire brush then I burned the whole thing with a blow torch. After it cooled I lime pasted it making sure I removed all the excess paste finally I have it a couple of coats of oil to seal it all in .

The lime paste is a bit like grain filler and sticks to the grain and makes a more prominent feature it comes in other colours to. Thanks for the comments. Cheers dunk
