Thin Walled Cedar Bowl

Well the bark fell off in about 30 seconds but the natural shaped edge still looks pretty cool. The grain has some nice dark streaks and stuff. Managed to get the walls nice and thin though as you can see in the shots on my chandelier. This was made from a cedar log that a neighbor had from trimming his tree. I love using found wood whenever possible. Finished with linseed oil/shellac/wax which is my new favorite finish for a shiny look. Mostly because the shellac is so forgiving and easy to fix drips and runs from my crapping finishing technique. Hope you like it.

I love it !!! I know how it feels when the bark flies off. One thing I’ve learned is to keep a close eye on the bark as it’s turning. I stop every once in a while and check to see if it’s coming loose anywhere. If it is, I use super glue to reattach it.
