These two bowls have been hanging around for a while and they were finished last week. Both are sanded to 400 grit and finished with Shellawax Glow.

The willow bowl is 6in x 3in and the fig is 5.5in x 2.5in.

There is some spalting in the willow bowl and I just love the grain pattern and colours in the Fig wood.

Hope you enjoy and thanks for looking.

As usual, C & C welcome.

Nice work. How was working with Fig? Does it move a lot? Does it check or crack?

Nice turning Bob, agree that the grain is nice on both bowls but the fig is more defined.
