new potpourri and a natural edge bowls

keith zimmerman, Normal, IL
>I have a few more potpourri bowls completed and a new natural edge bowl to show. The potpourri bowls are from cherry, curly maple, and walnut and are all approx. 5" in diameter and between 2 and 2 1/2" high. The finish is Minwax Tung Oil Finish. They will soon be getting a Beall buffing.

The natural edge bowl is made from walnut and is about 6" in diameter and 3-4" deep. I had to glue half the bark edge back on as it separated from the sapwood while I was turning. Fortunately none of the bark broke off and I was able to use CA glue to reattach it. The bowl is about 3/8" thick to show off the bark. The finish is Minwax Tung Oil Finish and the sides and inside will soon get a Beall buffing. The bark will not.

Thanks for looking.
