Solid cherry bowl made from reclaimed cherry wood. Had a little trouble with the inside bottom, it didn’t want to sand out, but what the heck, still looks good to me.

Looks good from here. The funny part, if you didn’t say anything, no one would know. I won’t tell.

Grub,
I make my own finish. I take either tung oil or walnut oil, heat it in the microwave for about 1 minute, then dissolve beeswax into the heated oil. I then put it in an old jar, like from spaghetti sauce or something, and let it cool. When it cools it turns into a nice paste wax that finishes up nicely.
