Nice lidded bowl/container turned from a piece of wild cherry. This bowl is one of the larger turnings I have done. I thought using Wild Cherry, the color of the bowl would have been a redder color. It is reflecitng alot of character especially the side shot showing a imdage of some thing This is my 19th project. I sanded this with 60 grit paper up to 600 grit. Than the finish is triple EEE and Shellawax. Managed to get a good tight fit on the lid and over night it even got more tighter. This was a fund project that took me about 3 hours from sawing the log with a chain saw to the finish project.

Hey that is a nice one, Danny. Please bring it along today when we go to the play. I’d like to see it and see the wild cherry wood. If it is like regular cherry, it will naturally darken over time. Do you have a small chunk I can ply with?????...............Jim
