Heres 2 pinch bowls I made from birch!

Ill do my best to explain how I made them..

I have a chainsaw mill, so I used that to mill it into 1.5” planks.


Drew a circle in the center, and with my 2” gouge , carved out the bowl.

A quick sand, then finished with a bees wax and mineral oil paste.

They turned out great!

Lots more stuff on my shop site! Check it out!

Wow, I would have guess they were turned on a lathe. Very smooth carving.
