A bunch of bowls
As I mentioned, since late summer, after getting my shop moved to Middleton, I've been doing some turning. Here are some of the bowls I've done since then:
Spalted maple salad bowl - 11 3/4" x 4 1/4" Finished with Mahoney's heat treated walnut oil. I have had this blank for more than four years - collected it from a tree taken down by the city.
Natural-edged spalted birch bowl - 7 3/4" x 3 3/4" Finished with General Finishes Wipe-on Urethane. This wood came from a birch tree in our front yard.
Large butternut salad bowl - 12 1/2" x 3 1/2" Finished with Mahoney's heat treated walnut oil. This wood came from a raffle at Badger Woodturners.
Cherry burl bowl - 6" x 3 1/2" Finished with Mahoney's heat treated walnut oil. This bowl was turned from wood left in a pile by the city after it had cleared a small cluster of trees.
Apple bowl - 10 1/2" x 4 3/4" Finished with Deft Clear Wood Finish. This bowl was turned from the same apple tree trunk as the apple bowls pictured earlier in my blog.
Spalted Maple bowl - 11 1/4" x 4 3/4" Finished with General Finishes Salad Bowl Finish. Also from a trunk section I collected about four years ago.
