This was my first attempt at bowl turning. I am super happy about this bowl! It turned out way better than I could have imagined. The wood is dogwood, if you can believe it. It was a huge standing dead tree in my back yard for a couple years and a recent storm brought it down. I checked the MC and it was at about 16%, so i cut ‘er up, and made some blanks. I surely didn’t expect all the figuring i found in it! anyway, finished the outside with 3 coats of wipe on poly, buffed it out with some paste wax, and the inside with mineral oil and beeswax. all comments appreciated!
