Hey everyone,

Haven’t posted anything for a while so I thought I’d post this one
This bowl is turned out of Rosewood with QLD Maple accents. I thought I’d try something a bit different for once….

It measures about 210mm wide by 25mm deep (about 8 1/2 by 1)
finished with EEE Ultra Shine and Shellawax

thanks for looking
comments and critiques welcome

Master Broda… you have certainly come a long way… this is an excellent example of your work.. well done.. my young friend..I love working with both Rosewood and the Queensland Maple… FYI… the Torque Work Centre will be travelling to Newcastle Wood February… the Sydney Hands On Expo is on hold… I am told that Aaron and Luke will be travelling through the northern NSW coastal area on the way to and back and hopefully dropping in to see various wood working clubs… let me know if you are interested….and I may be able to schedule a stop at your workshop..If this indeed happens I can send some of my favourite Purple Heart with them…. regards Lazy Larry

Great form on this one. The soft curves compliment the soft finish.
