Pictured: Bandsaw Bowls or display trays cut and crafted from a spalted hackberry limb.
Build: This project was spun from leftovers, a 1 1/2 thick x 5 1/2” round left over from part of a limb left remaining from yet another project that I was just able to toss into the trashcan when it spoke out to me before leaving my hand saying hold on there’s still more to me yet so I kept my grip and grabbed my log jig once more fastening it to the jig I took a 1/4” off of one end making it the bottom and grabbing my pencil I created a 3/8” circle and off to the blade it went, since I still had yet another plug of wood once again I said why not do it again. :)
Finish both are finished in one coat of Tung Oil and several coats of wipe on poly these bowls took several coats of poly due to the density of the wood, I then applied a final coat of Minwax finish paste wax which is a 3 day process to give these bowls their natural beauty and appearance.
Scope: I wanted to create something a little different and also changing it up a bit and not having a lathe this is what I came up with. :)
Thanks so much for looking and comments are always enjoyed.
