This project was going ok

until the bottom of the bowl blew out because I ran the tooling too deep.


One thing with working with wood, you can usually cover up your mistakes.

Both ends

The end result was satisfactory.

Thanks for looking

It’s very lovely, Tony. But, please tell me you do that under adult supervision.

No supervision needed now Mark. I guess you are talking about the burn

Thanks Bob. I think I’ll do a few more burns. It’s a bit like getting addicted to making pens.

I love looking at rescue masterpieces. It really amazes me how beautiful they can actually be when all are combined into a final form. A simple Bowl wouldn’t take much time to complete but the end result is truly worth all that effort. I would love it should someone were to ever gift me one of these.

A bowl with a handle. Nice fix. The burning looks great and goes well with the grain. Addiction strikes again.
