A First Bowl – Almost

A turned wooden bowl

This started out as a bowl but the recess that i turned on the base for my scroll chuck cracked when I started to hollow it out. Undeterred I pressed on and repurposed the blank. I need to make a base for a trophy at work. We are having a soup competition with a soup off at the end. A custom ladle will adorn this base. It’s made from a piece of Red Gum and finished with Danish oil, the only finish that I had on hand.  A bit rough and ready but fit for purpose, not bad since I bought it at the local garden centre. Handpicked from a pile of firewood.
