I finally got this bowl finished today. It has been a work in progress for nearly 2 years, so it is good to have it done. The blank was very fragile and was full of holes, so much repair work was required. I didn’t have a pressure pot either so it was lots of resin, wood hardener and CA glue.
All the initial shaping work was done with steel radiator hose clamps wrapped around to outside to keep it together. Every time I repaired it and then cleaned it up, there were more holes and flaws. This went on and on.
Now there are a few minor flaws and the piece cannot be sold, but that is OK because SWMBO really likes it.
The finished piece is approx. 8in X 3in and is finished with 3 coats of Wipe on Poly.
Thanks for looking and C & C are welcome.
Hope you like it.
