This is my first attempt at a large bowl. Spalted Horsechestnut measuring 9″ by 7″. The blank was bought from Ed of Olivers Woodturning. The finish is Teak Oil and the only disappointment is that it did not turn out as shiney as I would have wished. This bowl actually sold before it was finished. Took it to a fare to hand sand it before applying a finish and a lady saw it and offered me a very nice price. Just hope she is happy with it now that it is ready to be picked up.
