This is my first bowl I have turned. It’s in Silver Ash and is about 120mm across and 45mm deep. It’s finished with a burnished wax coating.
I’ve also done a bowl from Sassafras. My mum stole this one before I got a chance to show it to anyone.
This was another bowl I did at the same time from Myrtle. It had some small defects in the wood that turned out very nicely and added a bit of character to the bowl.
As a bit of an experiment I thought I’d take a few scraps of plywood, glue them together and see If I could turn out anything decent from them. Overall I’m pretty pleased with the way they turned out and they do have a very interesting look to them.
It was a bit hard to get a good finish on them as the wood grain runs in all directions and there are a few small voids in the ply as well.
This is a bowl I turned from some Yellowbox that was given to me by a friend. There was a lot of splitting in the wood so it took a while to get it turned. I had to apply quite a liberal amount of superglue to some of the cracks to help keep it together.
This bowl is made with a hunk of Blackwood that I had picked up somewhere. It’s about 200 mm Dia and 50 mm High. It’s finished with several coats of Ubeaut Aussie Oil. Still need to put a couple more coats of oil on it yet.
