I made all four bowls from the one Red Oak Blank.
The largest is 10.5” x 4” and the smallest one is 4.5” x 1”. They are sanded to 400 and then polished with Shellawax Glow.
I love the grain in this piece of timber, and I hope I did it proud.

Thanks for looking and I hope you like them.

C & C Welcome.

Bob.

Wicked Nice set of bowl’s Bob! The wood grain is really beautiful! I love the look of the “big” bowl. I would make that my favorite popcorn bowl.
You’ve got my vote for doing it proud!

Thanks Tony,
the wood looked pretty ordinary until polished, I couldn’t believe my eyes.

Very nice set of bowls. Do you have a specialist tool for paring out the bowls from the blank?

Yes, it’s a “Coring Tool”, the one I have is a Woodcut Brand.

Nice bowls, great way to save wood, Haven’t been doing any lathe work for some time but started turning again yesterday as I had finished some other projects, its fun. Nice to see your work.

Nicest piece of red oak I’ve ever seen. You did it well my friend. Interesting subject those coring tools. Something I should look into. They sound expensive.

Very impressive! I’m at a bit of a loss figuring out how you were able to the bowls out from a single piece of stock like that. Next time, post a few “in process” pictures too, please!

Live wood, Bob? An actual Red Oak log? Red Oak doesn’t look like that in my world. That’s gorgeous.

They real nice Bob, like the grain of the wood and the finish you have achieved, well done. That is what I call getting value from your coring tool. That contrast in the big one makes it my favorite.
