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

And it is still around 36 years later. Great job.

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.

Looks great to me, especially with 36 years of use. Must have been a durable finish.

Thanks, John. I think the finish lasted so long because I gave it to my mother, and she put it up on a shelf for display. I got it back in y2k when she passed away 16 years to the day, today.

So, it was indeed treasured, and now it has special meaning to you. Wonderful.

Thanks. I bought a Record lathe over 6 years ago, and am working down the list of tasks that precede me getting to use it. Haven’t made a thing on it, and I assembled it after the previous owner had it for 22 years without even assembling it. I sure hope I get to use it soon! So much to do and so little time!
