Very nice. I think we all can appreciate the effort it took to get that smooth finish.
I’m sorry but I have to say this….....It should have been made out of bloodwood for the red color.

You routered that heart perfect. We all have dealt with burn marks and they are a pain to remove. Maybe someone will one day come up with a “burn creme” that will rub the burn out of the wood.

Nick – a very nice bowl. I cannot tell from the pictures – but are the sides sloped at all? If so, how did you manage that?

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Everyone for taking the time to look and comment;
Mike; I think your right but I was fresh outa Blood-wood.
Don; Great idea – I could sure use some of that “Burn Creme”!
Betsy; The sides are slightly rounded from belt sander, then ran a large round-over bit around the bottom.
Scoops; My Better-Half will take care of those M&M’s
