For the father who has everything! A custom wooden snack bowl for all those treats while watching the Yankees!

I used Maple,Cherry,Oak and Ash. It was supposed to be a little taller but the top kind of exploded after one of my DULL chisels caught an edge.

The only truly frustrating part about turning bowls and other stuff is keeping those chisels razor sharp. I have yet to find a decent solution so I am going to go out and spend more money on something expensive that probably will work.. I dunno. There are lots of opinions out there about sharpening.. Not much of a consensus…

Oh well off my soap box and into the shop.

Good looking bowl! Great wood combo, shape and the finish made the beautiful grains really pop.

Have your say...
