Burned Bowls Project

I have started to make two bowls. One is a very nice piece of Holm Oak (Quercus Ilex) or Holly Oak the second is a heavily cracked piece of Eucalyptus. 

I have turned the outsides and rims of the bowls, leaving the chucking tenon on so I can re-mount them on the lathe but I have not hollowed them out at this stage.

The burned sections have been treated with boot polish to enhance the black appearance and to give them a sheen.

I will post an article when I have them completed.
