After making the half track I needed to do something simple so I have just finished this bowl made from Chestnut burr and measures 9” X 4 1/2” Finished with a food safe oil/Mineral oil and then woodwax 22 paste and hand buffed.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

That’s beautiful! You did that on the lathe? Man, you have some real stones. I’d be afraid to be wearing chunks of that, while turning it.
