These are some mini-bowls that I’ve been working on the past month using scrap wood from my shop. The first two are made from mahoghany and the last one is from southern pine. I roughed out the bowls with Foredom and Dremel grinders and do the detail work with X-Acto knives and carving gouges. The finish is brown shoe polish with multiple coats of paste wax. As these bowls are to be used for decoration they weren’t finished with food-safe finishes. These bowls were challenging due to their size and more time is spent with sanding then with carving. I didn’t use any particular patterns rather letting the wood create the carved design!
