    Salad Bowl the end

    Well here is my salad bowl, i set out wanting to make a usable bowl rather than an ornament. Would like to say thanks for the help with a food safe finish, in the end i went with Pierre's suggestion of grape seed oil and pure beeswax. His suggestion of 80% oil and 20% beeswax was good though in colder times i think it will need more oil. The outer surface has four coats of sanding sealer and two of wood working wax.
    I finished this yesterday giving the inside of the bowl two coats of food safe oil made by my own fair hands lol. Trouble was i got a big withdrawal symptoms so started on a pice of ash. Think i am going to have to ration myself or i will be knee deep in turned objects.

    Couple of nice bowls Ken, be interested how the finish holds up to moisture etc, I tend to finish the outside with the same finish as the inside. I prefer the second bowl, but I'm pretty sure its Yew not ash
    cheers

    I prefer the second too and it doesn't look like ash although it's very good
    When all else fails read the instructions

    I am not that good at wood recognition, when i bought these blanks i do remember Yew being mentioned but as i bought about eight different pieces i guess i forgot.
    I just enjoy the turning.
