Here’s a sycamore bowl I turned recently. I’m still working on my Dremel carving. This time I made a 4-strand braid pattern around the mid-section of the bowl.

It’s dyed with blue and green transtint dye, and finished with a coat of Hampshire Sheen on the outside, and a bit of Mahoney’s walnut oil on the inside.

Nice work. I think the way you applied the dye has created a really intriguing look.

Great job.
