    Cherry Dish

    This is a cherry dish I finished in December. It's 6 1/2 " x 1 1/4" high. I finished with AO and sanded to 4000 after the finish cured. My wife liked it so much that she gave it to her boss for Christmas. All comments and critiques are welcome. Thanks for looking.

    Rob,

    I really like the dish, both the beautiful wood and the form & finish!.

    The only critique (if you want to call it that) is I can't tell what the bottom of the bowl looks like. With the ripple in the cloth, I'm not sure if the curve flows into a foot or maybe no foot. One more picture (of the bottom) would be ideal.

    That doesn't take away from my opinion, however. Good looking bowl. Looking forward to the next one.

    Agree-would like to see its bottom both in profile and straight on. What I can see is very nice and the wood is terrific.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the nice comments. Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of the bottom. There is no foot, just a flat,slightly undercut bottom.

    Rob,

    Very nice dish. This one has a lot goin on with the grain! Nice form and finish, I hope the recipient knows what they have and appreciates it accordingly.

    Beautiful color, Rob! And, while I like a foot on this form, you did a great job with this one!

    Beautiful grain and finish to this piece, I'm sure it will be appreciated. Nice pleasing shape that all would like, I suspect.

    Beautiful shape and color. Don't listen to JK... It looks perfect without a foot.

    Rob, thats a beautiful piece of cherry and the form shows it off well. How many coats of AO did you use. Always seems to take me more than it should (or I wipe it too dry)but I love the look and feel of it eventually.

    Baxter- It has 6 coats of AO. I put the first 2 coats on a little heavy because it soaks into the wood, then the other coats are thinner just to get some build and smooth everything out. I do sand lightly between coats to remove any dust or imperfections in the finish.

    Thanks again for all the kind comments.
