I made this maple bowl for my cousin’s wedding. I was originally doing a captured ring goblet, but had a last minute blowout with while finish turning.

Dimensions: 14”x5”
Finish is Watco Natural.

a great message—so easily forgotten when life’s little burdens start piling up.

This is a nice bowl – there’s quite a bit to look at here – almost like 2 opaque layers…

Very cool bit of wood, very nice turning and a sentiment every married person should wear “on their sleeve”.

I envy your having enough throw over the banjo to turn a 14˝-er. What kind of lathe do you have, and what did you use for a finish?

Have your say...
