...a turner makes a fruit bowl.
This project started out as a new salad bowl for Mimi but a nasty catch, with the gouge, instantly transformed the design into a fruit bowl. This was also my first attempt at microwave drying. Although the process works, I think I was too impatient and didn’t continue the drying process long enough as some checking appeared during the final turning phase.
The bowl measures about 11” in diameter and 3” deep. Made from a Sugar Maple tree we had taken down last fall. Finished with several applications of MinWax semi-gloss poly and buffed with furniture wax.
Thanks for looking. Comments and criticisms always welcome.
