Well finally I have finished the mahogany bowl. I added a walnut inlay to the top and then sand it up and with several coats of Doctor’s Workshop – Walnut Oil and wax. This was a humbling experience to try and figure out carving and then how to incorporate it on a bowl. What I have learned is I have a long way to go to becoming a carver and also one who can add carvings to turnings. Life is about new experiences and the learning will never stop.
In my travels on researching carving on turnings, I found a great turner who also does carving. His name is Cyrus Fillmore. If you are interested in adding carving to your bowls, give Cyrus a watch. You will learn lots and come away with ideas of your own.
See you in the Workshop!
