It’s been a while since I posted a project so… I thought it was overdue to share some project pictures of a few bowls I have finished.

The cherry bowl has been finished for a couple years and is starting to darken beautifully as cherry does.

Two of the bowls are spalted curly maple and just recently finished.

All three were finished with Tried and True Danish oil then buffed with the beall buffing wheels.

Nice bowls, Tim. I envy your turning ability. Have to get into that one of these days.

Finally recovering from some cardiac issues, and getting some energy back. So you never know, might yet get a lathe. Have been doing just some utilitarian things in the shop recently, but I am eyeing some projects. Have one going at La Conner, just waiting for the finishing touches.

Hope you and the family are doing well. Your bottle opener still gets used on a regular basis in La Conner!

Thank you all.

@Jim, I did not know about the cardiac issues, glad to hear you are on the mend. Take your time recovering and follow the doctors orders!!! lol

Also glad to hear the opener gets some use every now and then.

Been working on a tv stand/cabinet lately with my apprentice’s they are 4&6 now and learning how to sand. They have sanded all of the drawer fronts 80, 120, 180, 240, 400 grits

Those apprentices sound pretty useful. Unfortunately, none in the area, here.

I am close to finishing some speaker stands in La Conner, and then will move on to the AV equipment cabinet. I think it will be just a set of shelves in a box, since things seem to keep changing in that arena. It is not a heavily used system, so don’t want to do overkill.

We need something more robust here in Anchorage, but I am not sure I want to tackle it. We are going to refurbish the area it is in, and something may happen then…

Weather is improving here, finally, with some sunshine and temperatures in the high 60’s. It has been a cold spring…
