The vacation(more like a staycation) is winding down, and I am running out of things to do. I went to Sumner Woodworkers store to pick up a bandsaw blade, but they didn’t have one. So, I picked through the bowl blanks from the box, and I picked this one. I have never worked with koa before and this one looked like it had some curl in it. I paid
too much for it, IMHO, but I feel I need to do something to keep a local woodworking store open.
This thing is a couple of firsts for me. The koa and the epoxy infill of the voids in the wood. I was try for a jet black, but I got a dark gray instead.
It is finished with tung oil and a friction polish.
