I’m caught up on finishing bowls. 10” X 5”. Same finish. Tried to get less reflections in the photos, but it’s hard to do.

Beautiful job on the Cedar bowl John. That’s fine about the reflection, it shows the great finish better.

Otherworldly, John. Reflections are good, so long as they wash out the photo. They did not.

I just saw one this morning at a farmers market in Crescent City, CA that they were asking $175 for that did not look as nice as this one. Great work!
