mammut bowl deep grain sanded

Hello everybody

Today I show you a bowl made of redwoodtree deep grain sanded rustic

The redwoodtreewood is very hard and soft at the same time, making it perfect for deep grain sanding

Yes, Roger, I do like it. I have led a sheltered life so I have not seen a bowl quite like that.

Thanks Ed.

Personally, not impressed.

A better attempt to sand out the wire brush lines would have made it look less amateur.

Also, sand blasting would have done a much better job of accenting the grain lines.

So, again, just my 2

Usually when we think of deep grain sanding we think of texture, not sculpting.
You've definitely taken this to the extreme.

IMO, it "looks" too heavy, I don't think the sculpting does anything to enhance the look of the wood.
I don't care for the flat base (flat bases will inevitably wobble over time).

Thanks for posting, we always appreciate seeing other members work, whether it's to our taste or not.
