Absolutely fabulous work on the bowls and accessories. The bowls look flawless and even more important they are beautiful. I would sure like to know how you obtained that fantastic finish. Thanks for posting and a warm welcome to LJ. Hope to see a lot of projects from you.

Hi Jess The chop sticks were first cut on saw to+-5mm sq and then carved and sanded
the jacaranda stained black

Hi Stefang sorry should have added the finish in text catalyst base gloss varnish spared on about 4 coats

Thanks all for the welcomes and comments
Regards Roger

Fantastic settings. Great shape to the bowls and the accessories are beautifull.

Keep it up.

Very well done place settings…

The bowls are great…..I am not a fan of bowls with a foot like that, but in this case it just “works”. Gives a real Japanese feel to the piece. The colour is also a pleasant change that works well with this setting.

Very well done. .... “A tip of the Hat sir”
