Imbuya and maple glued up with Titebond III for washing ability.
I’m really getting into turning now to see the different wood combinations to develop a style. The maple was fairly difficult to sand smooth and this project took a few months of it sitting on my desk at work before i decided to finish it.
I’m really glad it is just the right size for a bowl sized bag of peanut butter m&m’s!
I applied about 5 coats of butcher block finish so that it’s food safe. I really like the shine on this one as I sanded up to 320 grit and then used #0000 steel wool to really smooth out the material before applying the finish.
Very cool stuff! Give it a try – you know you’d rather put your m&m’s into a bowl you made rather than an easy to grab plastic container from your kitchen cupboard!
