Picked up a new set of the McNaughton hollowing tools. This is my first try at using them. Tricky to get used to but once you figure it out kind of fun. The tree I used was Elm and the large bowl is 13 inches across and 8 inched deep. others are from the inside. Used a tung oil finish. Coldon

Your bowls are beautiful and the smooth and not too glossy finish is just amazing.

Those are some incredible looking bowls. I like that you got three for the price of one.
