This bowl is not nearly as finished as I would have liked. However after getting stitches twice yesterday while working on it, I decided that it was as cut down as it was gonna get. It has 3 coats of tung oil.

Cool rustic looking bowl. I have to ask: Was it stitches in two different places or did you get stitches, come home, and cut yourself again and have to go back?

Unfortunately it was two separate trips. Even the nurses laughed. Oh by the way, I work at the hospital.

You really need to post pictures of your injuries as well.

I’ve heard that multiple coatings of oils (up to 11) can really make a big difference. Have you ever done that?

I use King Arthur carving tools. They work wonderful. However, I don’t recomend them or any other power tools if you worked a long shift and are too tired to be in the shop anyway.

Ive used King Arthur carving tools too and if you don’t have strong hands then that cool will cut through whatever it pleases with no regard for your well-being. Nice bowl though.
