Hello all you jocks. Sorry have not posted in a while. But here goes with a couple Ring Master bowls. The one on the RH is African Mahogany with some sap wood streaks which worked out to add some nice contrast. It is over
7” high by just over 9” dia. This one was cut to 1/2” thickness so I could finish on the lathe. The other is plain old Ky. Red Cedar with more really bright sap wood. # 1/2” high by 10” dia. and was finished on the RM. Since these two seemed to me to be in the same type showed both in same post. Both finished w/ shellac and poly. Thanks for looking. Comments and questions welcome.

Nice work Vernon. Makes me want to get my RM out and dust it off.
Keep up the good work.

Both are very pretty.

I actually like the cedar one better though. I have been a fan of that wood for 60+ years now.

Nice work Vernon. Funny, completely different woods and a lot of similarity.

Beautiful Vernon, they look quite alike EXCEPT the colors are very different. Betcha in real life you need sun glasses to look at them
