Zoom Pictures

This is a bowl I turned in ‘74 when I was in the US Navy and had some free time. It’s made of mahogany, don’t know which one. It’s a little over 8.5” in diameter. The black lines i burned in with a wire. I have no clues on the finish. After all, it was 36 years ago.

Sorry about the fuzziness of the pic, I’ll work on that.

This looks neat.and the lines are burned in with a wire that’s an interesting technique

Thanks, guys. Kindlingmaker, I don’t have a lathe, sadly. I used to use my dad’s but he sold it in the ‘80s. Also, I have no room in my garage for a lathe unless I get a bench top model, which I may do. Those Trifern hollow vessels are awesome.
