    Cannonball bowl

    I made this in November and the article came out in December but I was so busy teaching I forgot to post it here.
    Thought you lot might like this!

    I was asked to make a Cannon ball bowl which intriqued me somewhat!
    Apparently it is a tradition in Sweden to make a Mustard sauce to go with a Christmas fish course. The mustard seeds are crushed by putting them in a wooden bowl and swirling a cannon ball over them in the bowl. The wood is traditionally Birch as is this with a Spalted stand for the ball to sit on when not in use. The ball is a 6 pounder that came up from building work in York and the bowl is just over 10" x 4"

    I can't decide whether to be a good example, or a horrible warning!

    Great looking bowl Neil,

    Like never heard of these, I used to work with a lot of Scandinavian blokes they obviously left my education lacking.
    But they loved their lutefisk, I never tried it, on a mid 40C day in a non A/C room, just the smell just about made me

    Nice piece and you learn something new everyday. Enjoyed a Swedish dinner on Christmas Eve this year including the fish and mustard sauce ( very nice by the way) but no one mentioned the cannon ball!
