    Pink Sycamore

    This one is 16 inches wide by 6.75 inches high, and you can see by the picture it is pink. Most of the sycamore around here is cream colored so this is unusual for this neck of the woods. It has 5 coats of tung oil solution and then buffed, your comments are solicited.

    My wife says this is a pretty piece. I agree, not because she said it is pretty but because IT IS PRETTY! Nice work, Glenn.

    P.S. If you are interested in plans for any project that I post, just put some money in an envelope and mail it to me and I will keep it.

    Yep...Mike's wife's got her head together. I love the lip on that monster....and that little wisp of color in the front gives the whole piece some movement. Very very nice!

    Glenn,

    VERY nice bowl and just about right for my size serving of popcorn

    You did a great job and I really like the form you selected as well as the choice of wood.
