Other half of the previous bowl I posted. Same process used, different stain with a little lighter results. Started with Watco Danish Oil “Fruitwood” followed by “Dark Walnut”. Used a rope as my transition between pedestal and bowl.

Thanks for looking.

...some think outside the box.

...while you think outside the bowl, and you do it very well.

Very nicely done. Len

Nice work on the bowls! Gotta try grinders, do you use a lancelot with a chain saw type edge or some of the new rasp type wheels?

Thanks, all. Studie, I use both plus a long neck electric die grinder. I use the chain saw type wheel to rough it down to the approximate shape I want, and the rest is all fine tuning. Inflatable drum sanders do wonders, too, although they are a bit pricey. Harbor Freight has some pretty good flap sanding balls (coarse and fine) that work pretty well – you just need to have lots and lots of patience when using these things because they don’t remove as fast as some of us would like. They’re pretty cheap, too ($10 each if I remember right). Couldn’t find a picture on-line. If I remember, I’ll take one and post it here later. If any of you are interested, I posted on my blog awhile back on using the grinder to carve these bowls. There’s even a short video (sorry, no monologue – just video – I ain’t no stand-up comic, that’s for sure). Here’s the link:
