I made a few more items for our upcoming craft sale in the park. The first one is a mesquite dual axiis turned banana bowl and it is finished with Danish oil and clear lacquer.

The second item is a cutting board made with mesquite and pecan wood and finished with just danish oil.

The third item is a fractal burned piece of maple plywood finished with clear lacquer.

Cheers, Jim

Those are gorgeous. I’ve never had the opportunity to work with pecan but a turner acquaintance recently picked up some wood from this pecan tree-

Nice work Jim. I’m wondering what most people call that type of cutting board, side grain, edge grain, or face grain?

Nice work Jim. Good luck with the park sale. That has to be the coolest banana bowl I’ve ever seen.

Really love all three projects Jim. Would be fun to see how you do those banana bowls. The cutting board has some really nice mesquite grain. Clean and beautiful design. I was particularly impressed with the fractal burning. It is very cool and shows how much you have progressed with that skill.

Interesting bowl, dual axis must make it longer than your other ones, do you bandsaw the bulk of the material out.?

I take it your shop had plenty of heat to get these items all ready for your sale 8^)

You must be one of the northern mid west few who always seems to have a stash of mesquite!

Looking good!
