Great looking finish John. How long had you seasoned the wood before you started?

That is just plain beautiful. You guys turning all these wonderful things are making me rethink my aversion to turning.

That’s a very nice bowl. You did a great job bringing out the character of the wood.

John, I think I picked up the apple wood from my sister in 2014 and roughed out a bunch of bowls. I finished the smaller ones last year. I’m slowly getting to the rest of them now, but none are much bigger than this because they warped too much.

Thanks Dave, I like this finish too. I use it on my favourite bowls.

Bob, the lathe is a handy tool to have even if you don’t turn bowls.
