This project was to make a simple individual’s salad bowl and use Ack’s Wood Paste for the first time. Ack’s donated a starter kit to me, after watching my video on turning wig stands I donated to a local breast cancer clinic. So I put it to the test.

The wood for this project is Curupay, also known as Patagonian Rosewood. It is a very hardwood and displays some wonderful grain structure. There were a few blemishes in the wood, which I think make it even more unique.

I was going to turn a basic bowl, half ball if you will, but as I turned it I felt it needed more character and added a pedestal. I think this turned out great and the Ack’s being 100% food safe makes this bowl perfect for a salad or any other food product.

The Ack’s Wood Paste is such a wonderful finish, I want to save it for food projects and make it last as long as I can. I still have plenty of O.B. Shine Juice for non-food projects. In the future I might be an exclusive Ack’s user.

Anyway, if you haven’t tried Ack’s Wood Paste, you should give them a try. You will not be disappointed.

Here’s this weeks video: Patagonian Rosewood
