A Couple of Bowls

I had a bit of time in the shed this week so I thought I’d try my hand at a couple of bowls. A nice learning experience and a bit of a change from pens.
– First bowl is Blackwood (110 x 20 mm). I had a bit of cranky grain on the inside so I tried a Decorating Elf and added a bit of texture.
– The second bowl is a piece of Red Gum sleeper (150 x 45 mm) that I got off a friend.
Both bowls are finished with Ubeaut Aussie Oil.

I’ll have to try and spend a bit more time on bowls so I can upgrade my skills a bit.

Cotton Spools

Have a friend that goes to a Medieval Fair and wanted me to make up some cotton spools so she could sell them at the fair. These are just made out of pine and left raw (trying to tie into the medieval theme of things)  and have a hole in the middle, with a wooden plug, to store needles in.

Will have to wait until next month to get a report as to how they went. Hope people at the fair like them.
