This is a 10” cherry bowl that is 3 3/4” high and finished with Danish Oil and 3 stage buffed and waxed.

I was cleaning out the barn, making room for the cheap bandsaw I put in there and sorted out all the logs that were in the barn for years. Many were cracked from end to end and those I split and put on the firewood pile. This cherry log was one of them but I saved half of it because it did not have full length cracks. I had a lull in projects so I turned this bowl to see how it would come out. I had to fill some cracks with turquoise powder and then finished the turning.

Cheers, Jim

Well done Jim. I like your method of treating the cracks with turquoise powder. It adds a unique touch. ;)

Very pretty, Jim.

When you say “turquoise,” do you mean crushed, powdered, or something else with a turquoise color. I ask because, in a recent post, you spoke of turquoise “paint.”

Thank you all for the nice comments.

Hi Mark. This has turquoise powder set in with CA glue. I did use paint on one of the fractal burned pieces. I used paint there because you have to sand when using powder and I did not want to sand away the fine detail in that burned piece.

cheers, Jim

Thanks Peter, Dave and Lew.

Hi Dave, you should have seen all the cherry, walnut and chestnut logs I had to burn because they split- probably 30 bowls worth!!

cheers, Jim
