Hi everyone, this is the result of a cooperative turning session with my friend Brian.

We almost had the piece crossed the street after a memorable catch with the bowl gauge but thanks to the tailstock used as re-enforcement during hollowing we could finish the piece.

The wood is red oak, is measures 6.5” diameter and 5” tall, the finish is boiled-linseed oil based friction polish() and carnuba wax.

Thanks everyone for watching

() Friction polish mixture :
1/3 Boiled linseed oil
1/3 shellac (wax free, just in case you want to use lacquer after polish)
1/3 denatured alcohol

Nice bowl. Fantastic grain. Good save from an almost loss.

Keep it up.

Very nice turning, I like the bark inclusions in it, gives it character.
