Cherry Bowl

Here is a bowl I finished today. The wood is from a cherry log I found about a month ago in a “log dump site” behind a golf course. It was a little wet when I turned it, so we’ll see if it moves or not. I’ll be honest, I just lost patience and finished it up…...sanded to 600 and 2 coats of Watco.

No problem…..I’ve used there Medium Walnut on red oak as well. I was actually pretty pleased with the outcome.

I think it was their Cherry finish that I didn’t like ..made the Cherry look fake , but that was 15+ years ago now.
Sticking with the Natural : )
