The first item is a walnut bowl stand finished with clear lacquer. I had some chip out inside and was going to scrap it but decided it would not show once the bowl as sitting on it. This is my test item for the new Zealand challenge that is almost done,Pete!!

The second Item I found when cleaning off the bench today. It is a stepped heart- a project that I tried on the scroll saw years ago but did not like how it came out. It has irregular gaps but at a craft show someone might like it.
It is finished with clear matte spray.

Busy, busy, busy. How did you get the ten mile deep looking finish on the bowl stand? Several coats of … what did you use and how did you do it? Inquiring minds want to know.

Nice work Jim. Your bowl stand made me think about those cup holders some folks use to hold hot plastic coffee cups with. It would be nice to have one in wood instead of plastic.

You must be one of those people who only need a few hours sleep Jim because you must be putting in 16 hour days in order to produce so many quality items.
