I had this blank for a long time but never felt my skill level could do justice to the wood. A couple of weeks ago I decided, “What the heck…”

Personally I think it turned out quite nicely. It’s the first bowl that I took the time to put my name on. I finished it with Clapham’s Beeswax Salad Bowl Finish.

Awesome! When you have wood like that I love the simplicity of design, it really showcases the wood!
