Project Information

Yep, yet another bowl design from the dunnage pile.
I made a lager "inverted" bowl a couple weeks before Christmas and thought I'd try it out on a smaller scale.
Indian dontknow wood, sanded to 320 grit, one coat of 2# shellac buffed off while wet, then about 3 or 4 applications of superglue on the outside for that shiny finish.

Gotta figure out how to get the superglue to dry smoother….got some ridges on it.

Your getting a good run out of this dunnage Pete, like the shiny finish in pic 2.

Another good one Pete. This kit http://www.woodcraft.com/product/2005233/10573/micromesh-pen-sanding-kit.aspx I think would do a very awesome job, wet-sanding. I put a small bowl with a little water below the pen (bowl in your case), and go thru the grits. I'm sure it would do the CA finish justice. I need to do more practice with this method also, seeing how the CA would be a very durable coating.

You're really lucky to get some of the world's finest Indian dontknow. This is a really beautiful bowl (I sure wish I had a chunk of that wood). Micromesh works great; it also helps if the CA is fresh. Thanks for sharing and keep on posting.
