This is my first bowl and first burl bowl. This was a lesson learned. First I didn’t take off enough material to make it turn smooth. It was out of round and let me know it. Second lesson learned was never let the tool rest get to far away from the material. Ending up getting my right hand all scared up. Bleed some and hurt a lot but I am okay. I washed off the cut, poured some med on hand and went right back to work on the bowl.
Finished it up today with some Danish oil and then applied some Johnson furniture wax.
Turned out okay based on what I started with. The burl was bad almost all the way but was able to end up with this bowl.
As you can see there are worm holes and I kept the walls thick in order not to have a hole in the bowl. Decided not to make it any deeper since it wasn’t that big around. Have to wait to the little lady gets home today to see what kind of score I get. I have always told her tell me the truth not what you think I want to hear.
BTW THIS IS MY FIRST PROJECT THAT’S NOT CEDAR HERE ON LUMBERJOCKS
What kind of score do I get from you guys? Be nice but tell me the truth.
