An oval bowl from CArole's book on wooden bowls.
I made this bowl for my sister in law but it is not a perfect bowl. It turned out nice tho and I think she will like it. I'm proud of it and my angles are getting better. I made a box for my brother but the basket I made for his wife got broken so I'm going to give her this bowl and she can use it for a candy dish or what ever she likes. I hope she will like it. The wood is pine wood that my brother gave me and the finish is butcher block oil and butcher block bees wax. This the oval bowl in Carole's book on wooden bowls. Enjoy Fay
Have a great day, Fay.

Nice bowl, Fay
It's curved when I want straight, and straight when I want curved.

I like the finish you choose. I am interested in designing bowls and getting them done. Howard's Butcher Block Conditioner is a food save mineral oil/ bees wax finish that you wipe on, wait 20 minutes them wipe off. Best of all you only have to sand to about 150 grit. You can buy for less than $10 from that store that rhymes with "dome he poe"
For fine finishes I sand to 400 grit and finish with a 1/2 pound cut shellac that I rub on. I give it about 20 coats. (okay maybe 10)
