Had a lot of fun with this one. It took a whole lot longer to finish than I anticipated it would because I was trying to be creative with some of the tools I usually use for these kinds of carvings. I think I’m finally on to something and will be posting in my own blot at some point soon on one of the tools/workbench ideas I came up with to fit the project.

Anyway, it is finished with two coats of Watco Danish Oil, one coat of dewaxed shellac, and two coats of MinWax gloss handrubbed polyurethane. I just wish the pictures did it justice. I’m a horrible photographer.

The dimensions are approximate because of the irregular shape of the piece. Length = app. 7”. Width = app. 5”. Height = app. 2 1/2”.

Thanks for looking.

Beautiful bowl. The Juniper has a great grain pattern, and the shape you chose is fantastic. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice piece. Looks like one that you just want to pick up and hold in your hands. I bet it is a lot nicer than these pictures let on. Great job.
