I haven’t added a project for some time and I recently finished this “butterfly bowl” so I thought I would add it to my collection.
I saw one someone else had made several weeks ago and decided to give it a try.
This one is made from Myrtle wood (California Bay Laurel every where but Oregon). I particularly chose this piece of wood because the grain curved at almost the same arc I want the bowl to go in and I figured it would make the outrigger legs less likely to break off with a longer grain.
It is 8.75” long, 3.5 inches wide and without the lid it is 2.7 inches tall. It currently has a coat of clear Danish oil and when it cures I will add a few coats of wipe on varathane.
