These are 3 bowls that I turned for demos for the high school wood shop turning students. I did the finish sanding and finishing at home. The little one ( 3 1/2” x 1 1/2”) is figured Beech that was half of a fire wood piece that was just too pretty to burn.
The middle one ( 6”x2”) is Jarrah and was made to a particular size to hold 2 decks of cards. It also had a groove inside on the bottom so you can get your finger under the last card to pick it out of there. We need that to pass cards around when playing pegs and jokers
The last bowl ( 6 3/4” x 2 1/2”) is a piece of red box elder. This one had a crack in it and it sounded like a gun shot when a piece flew off the blank when I turned up the speed. It had to be a bit smaller after that.
All are finished with clear gloss lacquer.
