While my Wifes out of town… Box Elder with on the lathe french polish, final coat is bees wax. I love this bowl, phenomanal red streaking, a little figure. Also pictured black walnut, also with a lathe french polish. On these bowls I was trying to undercut the rim, slightly enclosing it, I think it leaves a very nice looking form. Just staying out of trouble and revealing natures beauty.
All comments are welcome.
Thanks for looking

The french polish definitely brought out the color of the box elder. Nice work.
