Default 7 inch swag bowl

I was given what I thought was a pine board the other day. It turns out that it was one of those boards that was a glue up, sized and sanded and ready for painting, and this board was painted. I stripped the paint and loved the variation in the graining so I decided to use it in making a bowl. I used this board and a piece of left over spanish cedar to make it. The bowl is sealed with tung oil and top coated with shellac.

Very nice, DW. Swags are so cool the way they magically appear, and the grain really adds a lot of interest to the bowl.

Nicely done I especially like the elephant puzzle, great job of camouflage. Just kidding you about the title of the image.
