Russian Olive bowl carved with angle grinder, turquoise transition between pedestal and bowl, stain is Minwax red mahogany one application followed by two coats Watco Danish Oil (Natural) and multiple coats of spray gloss spar varnish. Bowl stands about 14 inches tall and is roughly the same in the widest parts of the rim.

Thanks again to Scott Shangraw and Juniper Canyon for your inspiration. I feel like I’m getting a little better at this, but still have a very long way to go to get to your level(s).

Thanks for looking.

Very beautiful work! But Russian Olive is the worst smelling wood I work with. As I have said, it’s like a chain smoker with bad gas.

Yeah, when I first started working on this I was under the assumption it was black walnut. Didn’t look like it, though. When I started carving, it didn’t smell like it either. Found out much later during the process that it is russian olive. Agree it smells really, really, really bad.

Very nice work and with a grinder! I am just getting into the “grinder” side of shaping wood and am a long way from where you are. Great job on this and the other bowl you posted too. The rope transition is a very artistic and unique idea.

This will be listed to my “wow” list. Good job on the wood and great finish, good shaping and design.
