The first picture is one of an Adirondack Chair set I have been working on to get delivered. Well, I delivered it Friday night. With that done, my daughter wanted a natural edge bowl for a wedding present for a very dear friend of hers. This is what I knocked out. I found this piece of maple in a firewood pile in Puyallup WA (thanks Ralph). I hope she likes it. If not, then it goes to my display table at my Aug art show. I really like working with these odd shapes. I just purchased a new chisle, the Ci1 Easy Rougher and was able to use it on this bowl. Fellow LJ MrEdd suggested this tool so I looked at the reviews here on LJ and found that many LJs liked the Easy Rougher. Well, I’m right inline with them. This is a GREAT tool. The next tool in my future is the Easy Finished. The finish on this bowl is a little walnut oil. I hope you enjoy and as alway, comments and questions welcome.
Oh yeah, the Adirondack Chair set is made of 5/4 Western Red Cedar and has 3 coats of Helmsman Spar Urathane.
