I’m finishing up the two mesquite slabs that I got from john at the saw mill and these pieces said they wanted to be a candy dish so I turned them into a lidded bowl that can be used as a candy dish.
It is 6 1/2” and 3” high and finished with Danish oil and buffed and waxed for a natural look. I could not get away from the sap wood without really turning it a lot smaller so I planned it into the bottom.

Cheers, Jim

Nice color and grain pattern. The mesquite must have been difficult to turn. Well done.

That’s a cool looking one Jim. I always like the sapwood mixed projects. I think it shows more nature.

Beautiful. At first glance I thought you were showing the bottom of the bowl and you were too lazy to cut the tenon off. :-)
