Default Eight Petal Bowl

I finally finished this project. It is the second one from Carole Rothman's book, 'Wooden Bowls from the Scroll Saw'. It is made with walnut. I used Shellac as a final finish. It finished ok, but too shinny for me. Comments welcome.

Looks great ..... the sanding on one of those is the mark of a dedicated craftsman.
Well done indeed!

Turned out great. I agree too shiny for my taste as well.

Very nice work, I used beeswax on the inside of mine and tung oil on the outside.

That is a really nice bowl. I have made several of this one. you can get a semi gloss finish to put on your bowls and then it will not be too shiny. I have another oval bowl in the bowl press now and it might be ruined , but we'll see. Again that is a really pretty bowl and a great job on the sanding too. Fay

I used tung oil and then shellac. I haven't tried beeswax. May have to give that a try.

Thanks, Fay. On my first one I used tung oil and clear satin polyurethane. May go back to that or try beeswax.
