Two Burl Bowls

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Two Burl BowlsHad time on my hands today, so knocked out a couple more bowls. My neighbor says the darker bowl looks like a Dutch shoe. I argue for genie lamp.Here's its bowl portion:I'm not sure what kind of wood either of these bowls is, but I know they aren't wild cherry.I think I'm partial to the lighter bowl. It was actually cut flat on both sides (must have been used for clock faces), but I think it ended up being a pretty nice bowl.For this one, I did put Dead Flat Varnish on the outside to keep it from getting too dark. I was hoping the inside of the bowl would look darker by comparison, but it doesn't really. Had even played with the idea of staining the inside of the bowl (might try that with the next one)Pretty much used the same process that I have been using. Had to use a paddle bit on the smaller bowl for the declivity. Then I used disc sanders on my drill. The lighter bowl was ground out, ground on the outside, sanded through 40, 80, 120, 180, and 240 grit paper. Both were finished in wipe-on gloss poly.Thanks for looking!

Furnished content.

More "Weed Pots"Completed some more “Weed Pots” before the bad weather moved in. Don't like running the lathe or big saws during storms, so will have to wait for the weather to clear before getting back in the shop. They are Mahogany, Walnut and Poplar with a spray lacquer finish.Bobby

Barn Wood Flag - hand hewn

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Barn Wood Flag - hand hewnWe have a local barn wood salvage company and I went there last year & found a hand hewn beam that someone had sliced a tapered piece off the face. It was about 6' long (6” wide) and tapered in thickness from 1” to about 5/8”.I have a good friend, at work, that was turning 50 so I pulled the old hand hewn piece out of my rack and when I looked it over I had my doubts I could do anything with it.This Betsy Ross flag was the outcome- I think it has a lot of character. Along with the old hand tooling marks – there were a lot of old mounting holes that added to the character. it measures ~13” tall & ~24 3/4” wideI have made over 20 flags in the past few years & this one was the most time consuming but I like how it turned out.The stars were carved (mostly) with my CNC- but where they wrap over a rounded edge I had to use a chisel.Thanks for looking.Bill in MI
