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.

Your bowls turned out nice Glidden.
When you get one like the mulberry that had some problem spots, thin CA glue does wonders. It will soak in and solidify the soft spots and keep the check marks from getting bigger.

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

Thanks for the comments, I appreciate the feedback Firehawk, just need to go get some CA glue.

Corbin, these are both gifts for the people who keep me supplied with wood for turning, I generally just give away what I make or keep it for my own collection.

I just got done cutting up a bunch more locust and some wood that looks like ash or maybe hackberry, I can't tell, so more bowls are in the beginning stages.

I want to die quietly in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers of his car.
