Project Information

These Bowls were made from an Old Pine Shelf that I had removed.
I don't know the previous history of the wood, there were some blotches that became visible only after the wood was cut. I tried to sand them out. But no success. It remains a Mystery.

The Bowls were made with a Scroll Saw cut on a 35 Deg Angel.

The Oval Bowl is 7 1/2 inches Long. 5 3/4 inches Wide. 2 inches Deep.

The Heart Shaped Bowl is 5 3/4 Long. 6 1/2 inches Wide. 3 1/4 inches Deep.

The Finish is Three Coats of Oil Based Poly lightly rubbed between the first 2 coats with 0000 Steel Wool.

No matter what I did the Blotches remained.

Kind regards…...Cliff

Fine set of bowls Cliff. Cool the way they are stacked together. Nice finish too.
On a occasion or two I've had blotches appear in some woods. I was disappointed at first then figured it's just nature.

doubleDD….Thanks Dave, yes stacking them is very interesting how a Bowl appears out of a single piece of wood.
That's exactly how I felt when I saw the Blotches. Disappointed, then began to realize that it's just
nature.

mel52…...Hi Mike,

Thank you….Yes hopefully you will try Scroll Sawing when you feel up to it.
But more importantly, how are you Health Wise, are you still making some improvement and getting stronger?
