This bowl was made in one hour.—My wife said I should make something for a relative that is moving to new mexico soon and when I went down to do something I spyed this great piece of tiger maple that I made into a rather ugly clock and thought “that would look better as a bowl ”,so thats what I did.I must say it is a great improvement over that ugly clock. I like the way it looks so much I think I’m going to make a few more.the finish is mineral oil and buchers wax.

The finish is mineral oil and bucthers wax. several aplications. The lazzy mans finish(I just made that up) at any rate it went on easy and sure made my dried out hands feel soooo soft!
