These two bowls were one that I did between classes at the high school. The round one is chestnut and the banana shaped one is another birch log turned from the sides ( Bambi Style bowl). Bambi, this time I even had the banana in the lost shot!!

They are both finished with Danish Oil and clear lacquer and will be given away tomorrow.

Cheers, Jim

Ok Jim, now I know what ‘banana’ bowl is. On the last one I thought you meant the shape, but it is for actually holding bananas. How did I miss that? Both bowls are real nice. I love the grain of the chestnut and the finish looks perfect for it.

Jim..Nice Bowls. Terrific Shape. The Grain is beautiful. The clear lacquer certainly has a high gloss .
Is there preparation apart from sanding when applying clear lacquer ?

I had a chuckle when I saw the Banana. Where are they grown? California or Florida Perhaps?

Regards,

Cliff.

Thank you all for the nice comments. I love making bowls of any style!
Hi Mike, I call it that for the shape. having the banana in there is an inside joke with Bambi from my last bowl:

“Oh,yes Jim,that is realy beauty
I am proud you try something mine.
But…where is bananas?lol
Winter will be cold and whatch out what are you doing with logs…hehe…
Thank you and wish you health and happiness

Hi Cliff I forgot to add that these were coated with Danish Oil first. Then I wet sanded (400) between coats. It took 8 coats before I was satisfied with the finish.The bananas are Chiquita brand and they came from Guatamala.

Cheers, Jim

Beautiful bowls Jim. I like the extra wide lip on the chestnut bowl, something I need more practice on.

What a finish!

The birch bark on the “banana bowl” really is special.
