My daughter was looking for a Salad Bowl for a friend for Christmas and spotted this one in my unfinished pile. It’s ready to go now, 11” X 4”. Salad Bowl finish.

Was in your area end of Oct. but some talk about a virus on the Ferry? Everyone wearing Masks? Kept my hand on my wallet, thought I might get mugged? Inside Passage shutting down, moving over to Keats Island.

Thanks Lew, I like the wide bottom too!

Andre, I posted the big one last August. You can stay in your car on our ferry, no worries.

Great looking spalted Maple John. I find these larger bowls getting more and more popular with people wanting bowls. A spoon and fork and it can be tossed.

Hi Jeff, I burn the information on the bottom. I cut the two rings just to make it a little neater.

Very nicely done. This is one thing I really want to learn to do. Still working on restoring the old shopsmith I have. Its a one owner machine that the previous owner used to make bowels on all the time. Im hoping to continue that once its back together.
