This is a shallow bowl turned from silky oak; I think its marketed as lacewood in america. this one is turned with a bead on the rim.

This is the first project I’ve used my light tent with. it made a big difference but I’m still learning how to get the best results with it.

180mm across by 35mm deep (7 by 1 1/2)

finished with EEE Ultra Shine and Shellawax

thanks for looking

Master Broda
You are certainly getting the hang of this turning thing.. keep it up.
The light box is working well too.

Very fine turning. I like the ridge on the edge. Gives it a little something different.

Light box works great. Nice clear pics to show your fantastic workmanship.

Keep it up.

Another very beautiful bowl with the ridge on the edge. The use of light tent has definitely produced better results. You will improve upon it as you use it more and more.
