Couple of bowls I finished this week. The first one is a salad bowl 10 7/8” across. This bowl has 97 pieces of wood in it. Its made from Oak, Alder, and Mahogany that came from the scrap pile from a local cabinet shop. The finish is Shellac then polished with a butcher block polish. The second bowl is small at near 8” across. Made with alder and mahogany. I just started turning and think I will enjoy this new venture in wood working.

Thanks for the comments guys. I’m new to turning and I think this may be my new favorite wood projects. Its fast easy and a enjoyable project. A big bonus is the wood so far has not cost me a penny, just scrap that others are pitching out. That makes it a big plus.
