This White Oak Burl was given to me by a friend and has been sitting my shop for 9 months drying. Well, after all that time the wood was still not completely dry. This project moved considerably after it was turned. This measures 7¼” by 4”, to finish I used Mylands wood filler/sealer and 6 or 7 coats of Polyurethane and then buffed on the Beal System. It was the first time that I have use Mylands and it won’t be the last, it is a great product. I have several more pieces from this tree but will wait longer to ensure that the wood is completely dry.

Super Bowl!!

I really like the detail on the lip. The dark line makes it stand out beautifully!

I forgot to mention that the dark line around the lip of the bowl is made by taking a piece of Cocabolo and burnishing into the Oak. The dark line has a redish cast to it. I saw this done at one of our turning meetings, I like it better then using a wire.

Great bowl. Love the shape and the line around the top set it off. Outstanding capture of the grain.

Keep it up.
