This is a cedar bowl with a natural edge. I started off attempting to make a platter but while carving it I decided to go with more of a bowl shape. I really like the natural edge.
The finish isn’t holding and if anyone has any experience with finishing cedar bowls/patters/etc I would love to hear some recommendations!
Feedback welcome! Thanks for looking!
Wood: Red Cedar from South Carolina
Width: 15” (max)
Height: 3 1/4”
Finish: Tripole, White Diamond, wax —> Shellac Sealer/Finish & buffed with white diamond to shine
EDIT: Thanks to the great advice I refinished the cedar bowl using Shellac as a sealer and finish. I buffed it using white diamond to a high gloss finish. I put some additional wax on it but honestly it didn’t need it. This was the first time I really used shellac and I love the way it turned out!
