Jacaranda end-grain bowl

Something I've been meaning to try again...
Could have, and probably should have, gone thinner, but remain concerned about checking...

Oh, and the hummers are out in force!
There are at least 15 in this pic.

Thanks,
p




...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

Nice bowl Paulie,
I like the natural edge. If you are worried about making them thinner, try one on a piece of wood that isn't too expensive. You'll surprise yourself. I've never seen that many h-birds in one spot. Nice pic of them.

Poly, 6-8 WOP, then 1-2 spray-on, in the rattle-can...
