I started ten of these bowls just before Christmas and WELL, you all know what happens at this time of the year. They finally got finished a couple of days ago, so that is why I’m not sure if they are the last of 2013 or the first of 2014. LOL.
No 1. Eucalyptus platypus and the repairs are epoxy and coffee grounds. approx. 8×4in. Shellawax Glow finish.
No 2. Australian Walnut – spalted. Approx. 8×3in. Shellawax Glow finish.
No 3. Eucalyptus ? Sugar gum. Approx. 8×3in. Shellawax Glow finish.
No 4. Corkscrew Willow. Approx. 9×3.5in. Wipe on Poly finish.
No 5. ??? Coral Tree. Approx. 6×3in. Wipe on Poly finish.
No 6. Banksia menziesii. Approx. 6×3in. Krylon Clear Varnish finish. This piece had a severe crack almost all the way through so I Cut and Shut a piece of pine into the cracked area. Don’t you just hate it when the depth becomes equal to the height. I glued another piece of Banksia into the base and the inside buckled during that process. Sanding went right through the bottom and exposed the glue. This one might be a keeper as well.

C & C welcome and thanks for looking.

Bob.

Robert,
I get most of it from George Valentine in South Aust.
His email is nyodine@yahoo.com.au. George has lots of wood on ebay.

Nice lot of bowls Bob, and a couple of good saves. Quite a variety of wood, unusual to get decent sized blocks now a days.

What a mixture of sawdust you must of had turning these. Nice size bowls with beautiful wood. I really like that Corkscrew Willow.

No matter what year Bob, they are all nice, have to agree with Tony, Like the looks and color of #1, it reminds me of Carob.
