This is the first large bowl I turned since the blow out. I was more careful and checked for cracks often. I also wore my shield.

This comes from one of three large Cherry log sections I received from a friend about 3 mo ago. Wish I had gotten more of them but I didn’t have my Powermatic at the time so I just took them to help him out. I got one left. This bowl is also about 14” in dia.

The bowl is made from cherry

That’s some beautiful Cherry and a great turning as well. Finish is ?

Bill I was thinking the same thing now. I didn’t have much room and I didn’t have my Powermatic when I got them or I probably would have. I can now see the wisdom of putting the sealant on the edges though as they all have some cracks in them. Live & learn (least you spose to)

I haven’t applied a finish yet as I just got through with it and wanted to see if it would move or crack. It was partially dry as I have had the blank for a couple of months already. Probably use a salad bowl finish of some sort though. I have also used some of Capt Eddie’s OB shine juice and I like it also.

My niece is getting married later this year and she wanted to use a wood theme. When she saw these she asked if she could use them and would I make some more. I told her yes & yes. I have a cedar blank that I am going to cut a 2”-3” slab from and set it on a short pedestal and she can set her wedding cake on. She doesn’t know about it yet so don’t tell her. Haaa Haaa.

Yes , the reason I asked about the finish was it appears so Natural , or at most , a coating of wax was on it.: )
