Just took a bowl turning class at the Woodcrafters in Bloomington, MN in October. My two wet turned practice bowls went pretty well and our instructor, Jim Sannerud, was excellent. This class inspired me to cut up a large chunk of dry black walnut I’ve had for about 6 years and try my hand at dry turning. We’ll these are the first two bowls that are the result. The first is finished with Myland’s High Build Friction Polish and the second with O.B. Shine juice, a recipe I got from watching Eddie Castelin’s YouTube channel. I like both very much. The O.B. Shine juice gives a flatter finish the way I did it. I know you can get as shiny a finish as you want with it but I buffed it a little after the final coat and put on some paste wax.
Always heard going round was addictive and now I have a better idea why. Thanks for looking.
