Well done. I need a lesson on cutting staves. I have not figured out a safe way for me to do it. Do you have a jig?
Your selection of the materials is perfect. The fit looks wonderful. Tks for posting.

Good looking bowl, Bambi. What form is the beeswax in when you apply it? Paste? Liquid?

Cheers, Jim

Great job Bambi.
Always wondered how I would tackle Staves. They are pretty complicated I believe. Must have a go one day.

Thanks for sharing.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
