I really enjoyed turning this bowl. I keep my tools as sharp as I could. I took my time and tried to not rush through the sanding, and finished with bees wax mineral oil blend. I love making things from wood I found on the side of the road.

Hey Blue, I often try to balance a bowl so it has light dark light or vice versa, but I love the way the dark and light cut across the bowl, I’ll keep this in mind when I get a piece of wood I can try this on. Nice shape and finish as well.
