Hello Slotman, Beautiful Wood and Beautiful Shape, I would have spent another five minutes trying to get rid of the tool marks on the inside, What finish did you use??

Cheers Antonio.

Lovely piece. I made a very similar one last week from spalted Beech. What’s the size?

Great looking bowl and I love the spalting.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

The remaining tool marks were a result of lighting, or lack of when I was turning it. I turn outside & was trying to beat the dark. Gonna have to do something about that. It is 10” accross & it is just shellawax.
