Completely forgot to upload these onto LumberJocks at the end of 2013.
These bowls all came from logs I came across in the local area. All listed as firewood by various homeowners and tossed to the curb. I love you CraigsList. :)
They range in size from 11” round to 8” round.
Tried my hand with water-based aniline dyes on the two red ones. Really easy stuff to work with. All finished with Danish Oil.
Species by the numbers:
1. Maple with aniline dye
2. Weeping cherry with a hint of sapwood.
3. Weeping cherry with more than a hint of sapwood.
4. Good old American Cherry (my favorite wood of all times)
5. Maple with aniline dye
6. Weeping cherry with some really smooth grain flow
As always, I hope you enjoy and that inspires someone else to try using aniline dyes in their next project.
