several new bowls including madrone, mahogany and cherry

I've been turning like crazy the past 2 weeks. Here are some highlights of the work I've done. This first one is a square rimmed Cherry bowl.

This next one is another Cherry bowl but smaller, I feel it has nice form.

This bowl is from a Madrone blank I purchased. I'm not entirely sure about the form of this bowl. I love the rim, but am unsure about the base.

This next bowl is a piece of Mahogany that I picked out of a scrap bin. Nice simple shape I think

Let me know what you guys think. Any comments or questions are greatly appreciated Thanks for looking.

Very nice work indeed but you need to make your pictures a little smaller.

beautiful
I like the mahogany.
I've done a couple of mahogany bowls. I have had issues with the end grain raising after I finish them with my wax/linseed oil mix.

....what finish are you using?

Learning more about tools everyday

Thanks you! I love the mahogany one as well. I'm using a 2 step process finish. first I use a polishing compound called ultra shine. And then I use a finish by the name of ShellaWax, both can be found online. I get it cheapest at the Steebar company www.steebar.com It provides a very nice finish and if you sand up to 400 grit. it almost gives bowls a plasticy feel to them.

I will resize my pictures next time to be smaller

Great form on them all IMHO. I love the curve from the inside of the bowl to the square rim. Nicely done. The madrone bowl is not a form I would have come up with but it is pleasing to my eye none the less, foot and all. Great work!
