Made this 5-1/2 wobbel bowl from I pattern I got from Steve Good. I cut it out of 1/2 popular and finished with a dip in lemon oil.

Thanks for looking

I like this style of bowl, though I’ll bet it’s a chore to sand. Nice work. I’ve never heard of lemon oil finishing… does it work well?

Thanks for the feedback

Bobasaurus…lemon oil works great, but you can’t put poly coat over it. From what I understand the lemon oil never completly dries. Every now and again you would redip the piece if it looks like it needs it. Smells good too

Dubb… I did this on the scroll saw.

I think this would look really cool done in plywood with the grain showing on the side. Very cool design. Any chance you would share the pattern?
