I was getting ready for our big Christmas craftshow and glued up about 30 bowl blanks from the dunnage I use for most of my work.
I didn’t get them all turned and was looking to make something different for the wife.
This idea came to me after the wood was on the lathe.
I don’t usually stain anything I make for myself but wanted to try only staining part of the bowl, in this case the bottom (Minwax black walnut.)
Sanded to 320 grit, stained the bottom, sealed it all with 2 pound shellac, polished the surface shellac off on the Beall Polishing system.

Bob,
Dunnage, (from wiki) ...dunnage is inexpensive or waste material used to protect and load securing cargo during transportation. ...

Thanks Pete, I have used wood from shipping pallets but doesn’t look any thing like above. Merry x’mas.
