Pecan Bowl 11”x4”. Finish is Shellac & Wax. I was worried this would end up as fire wood because the log had some punky spots but I got lucky and this one turned out fine. Thanks for looking!

Did you have any trouble with tare out? It looks so smooth. My experience with this wood is it’s very hard to machine. Good looking bowl!!

Nice colours in a good looking bowl Stew. No picture of the bottom?

English, Not much tear out. I had more problems with soft punky areas. I used thinned laquer to harden those areas.

John, Here’s a pic of the bottom.
