Antique Oak Bowl Piece 426

Piece #426 – Oak – 12″ by 5″ –¬†SOLD

 

 

This is a big heavy bowl! After it was turned it developed a couple of small hairline checks. I stabilized them with thin CA glue and Oak wood flour. To turn the Oak black I applied liberal amounts of Iron Water and let it react over night. Iron Water is a solution of white vinegar, 00 steel wool and tea. The Iron Water reacts with the tannis in the oak and the tea and turns black. The bowl was put back on the lathe and polished with 00 steel wool so that some of the original Oak showed through. I then applied several coats of blond shellac. Make a great bowl to display pine cones in your mountain cabin.
