I was recently asked to make a bowl for the lady in the photo like the one I’d made for my wife. It’s so fascinating to me to see how pieces from two different trees of the same species can have such different color even when finished the same way.
Anyway, this “slab of bacon” as a fellow LJ’er called my last venture into this bowl arena is of juniper hogged out with the Lancelot chainsaw wheel for an angle grinder, smoothed out with an angle grinder sanding flap wheel, and finish sanded by hand.
The finish is one coat of Danish oil “natural” followed by one coat of shellac to seal it and multiple coats of hand rubbed minwax. The final two coats to give it that glossy look are of water based poly (food safe, I believe).
Thanks for looking.
