Default Another oval bowl.

I think my bowls are some what improving. I cut this one out of a piece of wood that I found in a thrift store and it believe it is curly maple. Man that wood was hard to cut. It was a little bit thicker than what the pattern called for, but I like the way it flared out. I still had some trouble with the glue but I think that is also a bit of an improvement and what Carole said, to put some mineral spirits on it and then mark where the glue is in a white pencil and then sand it. I did that and got better results but still a few that the sander could not get to. I put a wood turners finish on it and it has the kind of shine that I like in a bowl. Not a perfect bowl but an improvement and I'm pleased with it... Thanks for looking at it and any comments are more than welcome... Fay

Very nicely done Fay. I agree that the shiny finish sets it up nicely. That looks like curly maple to me. Thanks for sharing this bowl with us.

It's curved when I want straight, and straight when I want curved.
