Hello guys

My name is Niko and I’m a new guy at LJ. I work with wood only for my hobby in my free time. Recently, I made wooden bowls from birch that were all cracked. I finished the bowls with flame torch and l lacquer.
What do you think?

Hi Niko,

did you want them to crack or did they accidentally crack when drying? And did you carve them with hand- or powertools?

However, I like your bowls. They seem to be hundred years old an I like that look very much.

Thanks all for the comments.
The wooden log was cut on 30cm pieces and was laying on the ground about 6 months. Some pieces were cracked from the begining, some cracked while they drying (my mistake). Small cracks were arise with the heat of flame torch.
I carve with powertools and chisels.
