This is one of my most recent projects. It is a bowl made from Rock Maple and measures 7” across the top of the bowl and 4 1/2” across the bottom. It stands 4” tall. I spent the last two days (24 hours in total) in my shop working on a few different projects including this one. The bowl shape wasn’t my main goal with this project. I was testing out new tools and a few new techniques. In particular the bottom of the bowl was something I focused on. The one thing I need to get is a softer set of jaws for my chuck; they tend to leave a mark on the wood. The bowl was sanded to 400 grit and the finish is Shellawax polish. The last two days lent themselves to many new techniques and I am very happy with the results.
I will be sdding some of the other projects shortly.
Any feedback would be welcome.
