I had a bit of fun with this bowl, firstly the wood was quite soft and not having the means to stabilise it I needed to use lots of thin CA.
The crotch log was purchased from South Australia, split lengthways and then turned.
The piece was sanded to 400 grit and then sprayed with Krylon Clear Varnish. I lost track of how many coats.
The bowl measures 10.5in x 7.5in x 2.75in tall.
The other half is on it’s way to Hawaii, I developed a reaction to this wood dust. Leucadendron is from the Protea family, and I have a severe allergy to Grevillea which is also from that same family.
I hope Steve has no problem with it.
Thanks for looking and I hope you like it.
C & C welcome.
-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
