Wide rimmed bowl

I turned this on saturday. I actually was going to do the rim a bit different to mimic something from our last club demo by Trent Bosch. But for some reason I decided to start cutting some beads on the outside, more like Al Stirt. Then I decided to cut the ones on top. The wood came from a supplier in N. Carolina. He didn't know what it was, it didn't come tagged from his supplier. It looks like some kind of mahogany, only more honey colored. I put a couple of coats of shellac then a couple coats of lacquer.

Very nice. Definitely Honduran mahogany.

Great job. I love the wrap around bead idea on the edge. I did one like that many years ago. I have another idea along that line to continue the shape around the edge but will require some more thinking and then some carving.

Beauty!

I'll echo the kudos on the beading.

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

That's really nice. I like that the beads appear evenly spaced and all the same size.... they wouldn't if I'd done it! :D

Your finish is really what catches my eye right now. I've tried several on bowls, but I just can't get them to look like this. I might have to shell out for some buffing equipment.

Haven't seen you around for a while Mike. Glad to see you are still working and still posting. This is a gorgeous example of your talent. I can't even imagine what a pain in the rump it must have been to sand those beads without losing or altering their shape. Fantastic work my friend. Looks great.

thanks guys.
Kenbo,
I have been very busy working. When I get home, especially in the winter time, I am too tired to go start up a project in the shop. Now that its warming up, I'll be out there more. I went out Sunday late afternoon and finish turned one of my rough turned bowls of ambrosia maple. The wood is really nice looking. I am planning on doing some kind of carving on it. So it isn't quite done yet.
