My Newest Bowl – 13 1/4” D x 4 1/4” H – 195 pieces – Curly Maple, Padauk and Wenge.
This bowl took me 2 weeks to make. Yeah, I took my time, but I had fun with playing with colors! Trying to find pleasing color combinations and patterns is not as easy as it would seem without making it look too busy. Finding a pleasing shape is not that easy to do but I think I did OK here. This is finished with several coats of BLO (boiled linseed oil) mixed with Beeswax. I had to wait almost a month for the finish to dry enough to really buff it out with several coats of wax.
Comments and critiques welcomed and appreciated!
Till next time, happy turning!
