Topic tags/keywords: arizona mill citrus bowl mahogany french polish

Found this 10.5” x 4 ” bowl under a trash can of shavings. It is Mahogany and A citrus species bought from mill of Chas. Chaves Jr. Of Tool, AZ. Oil sanded, French Polish and wax finish. The citrus cuts beautiful and is harder than I expected.

Jack, that’s nice looking combination of woods. Pretty good looking bowl too. Ever think of segmenting? That combination would be great. ............ Jerry (in Tucson) looking for an Ice Age.

Just as you wrote, I was taking a break from the very thing. I am cutting Citrus and Ipe into a lidded urn, making the top from Ipe and the base bowl from the citrus. The ipe should give some elegant grain patterns. If you follow my posts, I have some other segmented work on here.
