After ruining the first 2 bowls i got this one right:D . It`s white birch 11 1/8" x 1 5/16", 2 coats of blo, didn`t have a chance to wax or polish, a good 1/8th" on the lip, gets thicker towards the middle, didn`t want to pop this one off like the last one.

John......that's a heart stopper! I really like the grain running in different directions! Nicely done. You've had a few "opportunities" to fix...but when they turn out like this one....it's easy to forget the opportunities! Nicely done!

Very nice bowl/platter, John! You caught the crotch figure very nicely, too.

john blanchard,
I will not speak to the beauty of that piece as Mr. Hart has, but I will say that it is certainly charmed, and I am pleasingly alarmed.

Frank.....Have you considered turning a bottle stopper?.....Then you don't have to consume the whole bottle in one setting.....:eek: :rolleyes: :D

Or maybe you just rereading Dr. Seus stories?:confused:

Ken,
My exhaustive study of stopper design (I thoroughly study any topic before undertaking it, btw), has brought me to the conclusion that lathe produced stoppers are best made on a scale befitting barrels rather than bottles.
john,
Your bowl is wonderful. Should you wish to think along the lines of Mr. Ken, it could be used as a group snifter, perhaps.
