And, in case you wonder about the inside:
As I described in the Blogs, the 1/2” dowel holes were bored at an increasingly oblique angle, as they approach the bottom. All the 3/4” dowels went in with the same trajectory. So, while the dark 3/4” spots are all round, the 1/2” Oak spots go oval to an increasing extent. This had the effect, on the inside of the bowl, of making some of the 1/2” spots come out next to – not through – the dark ones. Also, you may notice, there’s a straight line (I abhor straight lies), down yonder. That is where there was, evidently, a void where the second-to-the-bottom 3/4” dowel hove to in the blank. I kinda figured that might happen. But, I also figured that, in turning and hollowing, any such voids would be removed. I was wrong.
The finished size is 6” dia x 5” height. The finish is BLO/Shellac/Wax.
Thank you for coming along.
