« Part 31: My first commissioned turning! Part 32 of 50 for 50 - turning 50 as I turn 50 series Part 33: 50 for 50 gift bowl »

This is the second project I have made from a 8/4 remnant, where I cut the piece in half and then glued the resulting pieces together. Both times, there was reasonable grain match so the resulting blank did not look obviously like it glued up from narrower pieces. This started as a piece of white oak from the scrap bins at Forest Products in Maplewood, MN (always a good place to get a cheap haul of offcuts from their cabinet shop operation). I am really happy with the rolled rim and the overall shape. Finished with 2 coats of Clapham’s beeswax salad bowl finish, which I love on white oak. 11.5” diameter x 1.75” tall.
