These all came from the one blank, which I acquired green and has been cored and sitting in a box of shavings for nearly two years. I finished them the other day. Can’t rush these things, hey.
They are sanded to 400 and polished with Shellawax Glow friction polish.
The big one is 9×3.5inches, middle one is 7.25×2.75inches and baby is 5×2inches.
The stain feature is very nice in all three bowls.
Thanks for looking and I hope you like them.
C&C Welcome.

Bob.

These are great Bob, very nice grain and your finish is excellent. What system do you use for coring.
What type of wood, it sure comes up well. Thanks for showing.

I agree, these turned out great. To get 3 bowls without cracking is a great success in itself. Well done.

Good job Bob, nice that you can get 3 nice finished bowls all from the same blank, that is really conserving wood, Just think , If I was to do the same thing, 2 out those bowls would just be sawdust. That apple really has some nice grain structure, of course the finish brings that out.

Thank you for the feedback, it is much appreciated.

Pete, hope you can remember how to use that. I don’t use mine a lot but it sure does save heaps of saw dust, especially on a lovely piece of wood.
I bought a blank from the US and with postage and quarantine it ended up costing me $150, so that was when I got the Bowlsaver.

Cheers, Bob.
