My first Cedar Bowl

I finished this bowl up with 2 coats of tung oil and 3 coats of wipe on poly.It's about 8" x 3". I have a few more drying and should have them ready to finish soon.

Nicely selected wood and nicely turned bowl. Did you use a UV-protection poly? Aromatic red cedar dulls badly with exposure to sunlight.

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

Nice bowl Don.
That finish really glows. Looks like it is glass coated.

Very nice. I like the rim and the nice finish. I didn't know you could use poly over tung oil. Looking forward to the next ones.

Good to know about the UV. I've always had cedar fade severely but was not sure if it was UV, Oxidation or just inevitable. I think I'll take my favorite cedar bowl and hide it in a box until I get some protection for it. Of course it already has beeswax and mineral oil on it so I dunno if I can still apply protection:P
