I really enjoyed doing this one, a lady gave me a log section of this bur oak and possibly I’ll get a couple of bowls from it. Such a beautiful wood, grain is so amazing to me. This piece kinda reminds me of some kind of oyster or clam.

That’s very gorgeous. It looks like someone has taken it and stretched it!

I used the light walnut danish oil by WATCO, and then used their wipe on poly finish.

Great form on this vase – Gives the lowly oak it’s proper due! :-)I like bur oak, especially when they drop their texas size acorns. Nice work. -Richard

Nice work! There is some beautiful grain there. I like the fact you can enjoy the sapwood and heartwood. You never know what you’ll find in the next log.
