Mulberry and Locust Bowls
I finished working on these over the last few months.
The mulberry bowl was really a challenge, there was a lot of rot, wormy spots, and checking throughout the log that was brought to me by a co-worker. I was glad I could get one bowl out of it, dimensions are 4 inches in diameter and about 1.5 inches tall.
The locust was the first peice of wood I got from a different co-worker for doing stuff on the lathe, so it will be a gift for him next week. The bowl is about 4.5 inches in diameter and about 2 inches tall.
Both bowls are sanded down to 600 and then 000 steel wool, wipe on poly with some light sanding with steel wool in between.
I want to die quietly in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers of his car.
