Thanks, Scott Shangraw and Juniper Canyon for your inspiration. My bowls aren’t going to have the delicate carvings yours do (at least not yet – gotta get a whole lot better at this before I attempt you guy’s levels of expertise). Anyway, this is my very first completed bowl. Wood is juniper. Carved using angle and die grinders. Sanded with inflatable sanding drums. Dimensions are about 14”x14”x12” high. This is a gift to one of our Sons. He wanted the inside of the bowl to be left natural, so I braided a string of twine and used it as a transition between area that was finished and the inside which is not finished. Turned out nice, I think. Used Watco Danish Oil (Natural) to flood the piece. Then one coat of dewaxed shellac. Finally, two coats of clear gloss poly. Still learning, but gettin’ there slowly. Thanks for looking.
