My first attempt at a concentric stacked ring bowl. I had some issues with drill marks so I might need to use something other than the drill press next time to make my holes. I finished this with a mixture of melted beeswax and mineral oil.

Overall, I’m not totally happy with it because it does have a lot of marks from the drill bit. I filled in with sawdust and CA glue, but I still hate the marks.

This is a beautiful bowl and nicely done.

Nice color in that bowl. I have never tried working with mahogany how does it turn?

-- I make bowls and spoons.

This bowl was cut on the scroll saw (concentric stacked rings). I only put it on the lathe to sand it. Mahogany varies in hardness depending on what kind you get, but it’s like 800 to around 1100 or something on the Janka scale so I image it would turn pretty easily (like walnut, cherry, some maples).

Have your say...
