Bowl for fruit - Oblong

Oak fruit bowl

Finished with shellac sealer and Briwax

 blue shallow bowl made from elm.

Bowls from £19

Bowls - turned from blanks

First you get the blank.
This one is a piece of yew.
(Although it looks like a nice coffee cupcake.) Then you get turning on the lathe.

This is a different piece but is grooved
and varnished, lidded box.

Then you get the bowl.

These are 3 different blank pieces, just giving an idea of bowls and boxes you can make on a lathe.

From £15
