The largest bowl is about 12&quot; wide and 8&quot; deep. The rims were burned with a propane torch before the inside and outside were finish sanded. They're all finished with a couple of coats of BLO followed by a lot of coats of semi-gloss spraycan lacquer, wet sanded with 600 grit, buffed with PL compound, then waxed with Renaissance wax. I let the BLO cure for about a month before spraying the lacquer. This is my first successful 3-bowl set from the McNaughton.<br /><br />5 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=10138&title=mesquite-wedding-bowl-set&cat=692 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=10138&title=mesquite-wedding-bowl-set&cat=692 Thu, 27 Oct 2011 10:34:57 +0000 Walnut Crotch and Ebony HF <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=9317&amp;title=walnut-crotch-and-ebony-hf&amp;cat=677"><img class="imgborder" title="Walnut_Crotch_and_Ebony_HF_-_800.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/677/thumbs/Walnut_Crotch_and_Ebony_HF_-_800.jpg" alt="Walnut_Crotch_and_Ebony_HF_-_800.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Vaughn McMillan<br /><br />Description}: This piece of walnut crotch wood is about 9&quot; wide and 7 3/4&quot; tall to the tip of the ebony finial.
