Bowl of laminated walnut, purpleheart, and lightly curly maple. Carved with a grinder mounted chainsaw disc and hand sanded to 300, grain raised, and buffed with 0000 steel wool. I borrowed some beeswax from my art teacher and melted it with mineral oil for a food safe finish with good sheen. Presented to grandma after thanksgiving dinner when we left the bowl on the way out and she tried to give it back, it was definitely appreciated. Comments and criticisms welcome!
