The special bowl that I oiled up last night was a quache made out of a piece of maple. It was pain turning the handles but was worth it for the end product. Even better was when I oiled it the wood also went a lovely orange colour as you can see.
also roughed out some spoons last night becuase its been a while since i've done one. They are both pieces of sycamore which were part of a small tree felled across the road from me. just wait for them to dry a little then i'll apply the finishing cuts.
