This bowl was turned from a piece of walnut that was in my way below my sharpening station so I finally processed it. It wanted to be a round hollow vessel, but after cleaning it up, the top was all broken up from where a branch went through it, so it became a bowl. Some of the black area is still showing in the bottom

It is 9” diameter and 3” high and finished with Danish oil and then 3 stage buffed and waxed. This time I used my new buffing ball and buffed and waxed the inside too.

The second item is a cap for the old antique oil can I bought at a flea market this year. I always wanted one of these because it is hard to pour Mobil 1 oil in from the 5 quart container and I always had to do a lot of transferring with a funnel. The cap will keep the dirt and lathe chips out of the inside.

The cap is made from Pecan and finished with Danish oil and clear lacquer.

Merry Christmas to Lumberjocks everywhere!!!!!!!!!!!

Cheers, Jim

Looks very nice Jim especially with the subtle lip around the outside.

Even the simpliest bowl design looks outstanding when made of walnut – great finish too.

Bowl looks great inside, outside, upside down very nice finish, second plus is that the chunk of walnut is now out of your way…... Next the lid for the oil can is a great idea, those are not usually capped but this one looks great and is functional !

Thank you all for the nice comments.

Hi Ivan and Anatolii…......Yes walnut is very nice to work with it one of the best woods for buffing, too!

Hi Bruce, you know my barn so you know why that oil can needs a lid!!

Cheers, Jim

One beauty of a walnut bowl. Like others have said, walnut finishes great. Love the oil cap, good thinking.
Merry Christmas to you and Carol Jim.

Thanks. Pete, Brian and Dave

Hi Pete. I am very happy with the way walnut buffs up with the danish oil on it.

Hi Brian. I leave for Arizona on the 28th. I heard that big load of osage orange came to me down there today from my buddy Myron from Iowa

Cheers, Jim
