The first three pics are of an unknown wood that showed up at the December “Sawdust Session” of the wood turners club that I belong to. To the best of my research – I think it is pink dogwood. Just made a cute little natural-edge bowl. The last two pics are of a piece of spalted big-leaf maple that I stole out of my sister-in-law’s wood pile on Christmas eve. It and the two scraps that are shown behind the bowl will go back to her house this week. I’ll ask her to forgive me for stealing her wood. I guess I could bring her the sawdust I made from it too. This bowl even has a natural hole in one side. It would make for a great dribble bowl if you drank from it. Wow – I’m just having way too much fun!!
Both bowls have 2 coats of Zinzer sanding sealer/2 coats of polyurethane satin and 1 coat of polyurethane gloss.
