A Silky Turning

Well a large lump of Queensland Silky Oak has been turned into a large bowl. The final shape was dictated by the shape of the blank. I was trying to maximise the size.This whole thing of the wood  taking charge of the shape seems to be  a recurring theme in the bowls that I have made .

The bowl is approximately 250mm in diameter and 100mm deep.The bowl was finished with wet and dry paper after the usual dry sanding. I finished it with a food safe oil Ecowoodoil called “Natural Woodwipe”. Must say that is went on well its quite thin and seems to soak in well.
