    Bowl

    Well the wife pick up a piece of the wood Jim sent me and said she wanted a candy dish for the coffee table. So I couldn't wait. I finished up a clock I was working on and chucked up this piece. It has one coat of oil to pop the grain. It will get a couple of coats of shellac then General Finishes WTF. It is 7" across and 2" tall. She is a happy camper and told me to tell Jim that the wood is beautiful. Thanks again Jim.

    I'm bettin' there ain't much in Kansas either, Greg, unless Burr sends him more! I have turned a couple of pieces, and if Bernie's was like mine, it was a dream to turn.

    Bernie, that is an excellent bowl!! Looks a bit like redwood - beautiful whatever it is.

    Very nice bowl Bernie. Nice form, pretty wood and I bet the Mrs will like it even better if she gives you a chance to complete the finish!

    Thanks again. Jim I didn't think it was ever going to quit soaking in oil. Not sure if I will put another coat on before the shellac or not.
