This is another Sheoak Blank that I was able to mount securely and core out pieces to make the four bowls. The blank was 11.5inches X 3.75inches.
The three smaller bowls are finished with Shellawax Glow friction polish.
The largest bowl was sealed with 1 coat of sanding sealer and then finished with 1 coat of WOP.
All four were sanded to 400grit.
I hope you like them and thanks for looking.
C & C welcome.

Bob.

That’s some truly b-e-a-yootieful wood, innit?
Wait a minute. Where’s the previous one? Did you finish it? Did you set it aside? What gives, Honorable Bob?

I love this set of bowls. They are so beautifully done. What is the main tools that you have used to core these out with. I have seen this type of tooling somewhere but I can’t remember where. These are an outstanding set. Thanks for posting.

Very sleek looking bowls. And to be able to get them out of one blank is a lot of unnecessary waste. That’s the way to go Bob.

I am curious what sort of tool you use for coring out the middle bowls.
