If you remember, I roughed out a bunch of NE bowls and such from some wood I got from the local Shinto Shrine, well, I took a stab at finishing some today, to take to Canada with me..........

Not the best pics, sorry, but I'm pressed for time.

Turned out OK, I guess, just a basic wax finish, buffed.

Sure is fussy work getting into the bottom of these smaller bowls, even with the 3/8" bowl gouge

The first pic has a Zippo lighter in it to give you some scale.

Cheers!

Very nice, Stu. Have you tried an Oland tool on tiny stuff? Can even do undercuts with the cutter at 45 degrees and a vise-grip on the shank for torque control if you like.

A Zippo lighter? The new standard is batteries I think.

Bon voyage,
Joe
