The temperature dropped to minus 5 F. so was warmer to work in the basement than warm up the shop. I do lathe work in the winter when it is too cold and too hot in the summer.This bowl was made from a bowl I roughed out last winter. It is lathed from birch, finished with wipe on poly and then buffed with white diamond. To finish the bottom I pinched it between a unfinished bowl and a piece of foam. The bull nose I had was too small, do whatever works in a pinch. Then buffed with tripolie ready for finish. If this cold holds out I will have allot more bowls. Commenst and questions welcome

I really like the top edge design! Beautiful work.

I do not miss the – temoperatures; however, sometimes it seems that cold here although it is in the 20’s.. Must be the 85%+ humidity that makes it bite so bad.

I thought that it was just me, but my s-i-l was here from Great Falls, MT over the Christmas holiday and said the same thing! No, it isn’t like the -35 and 40mph wind that Nort-DeColder has but it still bites!

Slick work on these bowls. I do like the live edge and unique shape of them. Very cool.
