The wood that I used for this was found along the road, must have fallen out of a truck hauling firewood. It measures 5½” by 4½” high, I chose Polyurethane for the finish (4 coats) and then buffed on the Beal system.

All comments are welcome.

Interesting patterns and the natural edge really go together.

I must learn how to make this type of bowl.

Fantastic bowl. Love the natural edge and the grain pattern is outstanding. Great finish. I just love my new Beall buff system also.

Keep it up.

Nice bowl. I have to try that natural edge turning. The best kind of wood is what you find and create a piece from it that looks like this one. Good turning….......
