Here is a 12” x 4 1/2” with the walls 3/16” thick Cherry salad bowl that was requested by my oldest daughter.

Top of bowl

Bottom of bowl. This also lets you see the rings I put around the top for decoration and to help strengthen it.

The finish is first to cellouse sanding sealer then 12 coats of Wipe on Poly.
It is very water proof, but not dishwasher proof. I told her soap and water only.

Thanks for looking

I have a good friend at Woodnet that gave me the cherry bowl blank for which I am thankful.

Joe

The top is a little thicker due to the beading and band I put along it. Makes the top 5/16 thick alittle over 1/4

Nice looking bowl. I’m working on getting sides thinner but I get a lot of vibration off the tool.

I’d say your daughters request gave you the proper motivation. That is one very fine bowl!
