Here is a Walnut and Maple Segmented Bowl/Vase.When I first pulled this off the lathe, I showed it to my mother in law. Well…...She did not want to let it go. haha
I had to convince her it needed more finish on it in order to get it back. Needless to say, this is now her bowl. She is 83 and I spoil her a little. (At 83 she deserves to be spoiled).
7 inch Diam X 4 1/2 inch Tall. 112 pieces. Sanded to 400 grit, heated Tung Oil first 2 coats, then 4 more coats of Old Masters Tung Oil/Varnish with 0000 steel wool in between coats. Still have to wax this after finish sets up a little harder.
Please leave all comments and suggestions/criticism. I am always trying to learn and your comments help.
Thank You for looking.
