    Oak bowl

    Straight off of the lathe. I rough turned this Oak blank a while ago and it promptly split so I left it in the pile and came across it and decided to repair the split and make a feature of it, there are also some other splits.
    I think I need to work on the butterfly fits
    It measures 9" X 1 3/4" and is finished with Chestnut sander sealer then satin top coat finally a rub over with some woodwax22

    I like it, lots of character.
    Trying to finish work early so I can get in the shed.

    Find me on Facebook "The Pen Shed".

    Thank you Vic.

    On another site someone suggested using a router that cuts the hole through a template and when a collar is added can cut out the butterfly to match the hole, only then did I realise that I had that set.

    That bowl has lots of character Derek, I love it. I’ve got one of those router insert sets, good gear.
    Kind regards John.

    A cracking bowl by all accounts Derek!
    I can't decide whether to be a good example, or a horrible warning!
