I forgot I recently turned cherry, so the video this week was done a little differently.

A friend asked if I could make them a salad bowl. I grabbed a piece of wood I thought would make a great size salad bowl. I think it’s a little small for a large bowl, but they seemed to think it was a great size.

I used butchers block oil for the first time and I kind of like it. It doesn’t stain the wood and looks great. Althought it might be that the cherry is so nice, it wouldn’t matter what finish I put on it, as long as it was food safe.

The side of the bowl/wood was looking bland and I thought it needed a little dressing up. So I started with a large bead, but it was still blah. So I put a couple of groves on either side of the bead and made it pop. Over all I like the look, style or design of the bowl, but I’m bias.

Here is this weeks video: Cherry Bowl
