Fun Saturday project with my friends from the Central Florida Woodturners.

A turned Catalpa wood bowl, with burned in rings and burnished beeswax finish.

Real nice job Eric, do you use the beeswax with oil combo to keep it food safe? Been looking for a recipe for the mix with turpentine and shellac. Pat

Nice bowl, Eric. Once again you added nice color contrast with those rings. Are getting addicted to the lathe?

Best,

Serge
