Finished these two bowls a couple of days ago but we have had long blackouts so “No Power, No Post”.

Both bowls are from the same blank and sadly the photos do not do the wood justice. The grain is absolutely beautiful.

Both bowls are finished with Shellawax Glow, and sanded to 400.

No. 1 is 9.5in x 2.5in
No. 2 is 6.5in x 1.5in.

C & C welcome and Thank you for looking.

Bob.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Beautifully done. Great to see walnut when it shows slight hue of different color. No power, no post, NO WOODWORKING.

Look great, hope the beer did not get hot during the down time !

Just out of interest what is the surface finish ?

I have been practicing wood polishing this week, and have some walnut blocks.
