nicely done, is the sandblaster a way to avoid sanding. Good looking results.

You are correct really no need to sand and love the texture it gives me on Oak.

Awesome. It looks like a live edge Nantucket basket. I’ll tell my Wife she needs a sandblaster for her baskets. :-)

That is beautiful, I love the texture from the sandblasting.

Great job.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

I love these!

You said “wet oak”. I’m curious, would you get the same effect from dry oak?

I don’t turn but I do appreciate great work when I see it. How did you turn something so thin? Can you tell me about wet oak.

Is it oak that isn’t dry yet?

Best Regards,

Jim thanks for the interest in my bowl. This oak came down about a month ago and had a great deal of sap in it. I like to turn it before it dries out and cracks. It does dry out some while turning but I take it to the sandblaster as soon as I am done turning. The shop does not smell very good while working with wet oak.
