Dave give a try what ever method you do let us know you will be teaching yourself and others. On the box if this doesn't work try a contrasting wood sometimes that comes out better than all one kind of wood.

Jerry,

I'll try to keep a step by step of whatever I do. It will probably be the middle of the week or end before I get back to it.

I can improve this. I learnt a lot and could, I think, do this quicker and better.

That's it for this one, it is now on its way on a journey that will take it 1/2 way round the world across the Pacific to the USA.

Looking very good. Happy that you were able to get at least one bowl out of the piece.

Poly works well for the irregular surface and to be a hard film.

Lot of character in this bowl.

Thx Dave,


Manuka - yes the stick did go all the way thru. I got so on scorned in the form I did not pay attention to how it compared to the rest and where it went in and out. I have sent the bowl to the states now so can't even study it to see if it holds any traces of the original branch. I suppose it should. Yes it was solid cause it was hard to break.
