Bowls for Christmas
My Sister-in-Law asked for a bowl for Christmas. Either a bowl no bigger than a cereal bowl, or one big enough to display fruit. Well, after making the small bowl, I wanted to make a larger one. I basically made square end grain checkerboard cutting boards, 2 for each bowl. Then I cut rings from the two cutting boards, with one ring slightly smaller than the other. The solid center piece from the larger ring became the solid bottom of the bowl. The small one is 5 1/2 inches diameter, and the larger one is 11 1/2 inches. Woods are Mahogany and Maple. Finish is 100% pure Tung Oil.
ďWe should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it and stop there lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove lid again and that is well but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore.Ē - Mark Twain
