Wood and Yarn!

Another finished bowl--this one is 6" wide and 3" high.
The grain is spectacular from every angle!
I have some shellac, polish and lemon oil rubbed in for some sheen.  I had mentioned that is was oak but I was wrong;  as soon as I started hollowing out the bowl, I could smell the camphor! 
 I was asked what I am doing with all of the bowls that I have made so far and the answer is I am stacking them on my knick knack shelf 
to be pretty for now! 
 I am learning how to perfect the process and so I will keep making them!  This is the first one that I can say I am proud of this one!  
No tool marks and the finish is smooth.
Here's to many more!
And I am knitting-one man hat done....
and another one has begun!

  2. I think all of your bowls look beautiful. They would make great yarn bowls to keep your projects in.

  4. The grain on your bowl is truly lovely - you'll have to set that one on its edge on the shelf so the beauty of the interior is visible. You are so talented!

FOR THE NON-HAT-WEARERS!

I know, I make so many hats but I hate to wear them--only in a blizzard will you find me wearing one since I got glasses--20+ years ago! lol...
