This large bowl was turned from a section of Sycamore I picked up from Ormsary Sawmill on the Kintyre Peninsular. I'd been using it as a seat in my workshop for nearly 12 years before finally getting round to doing something with it. I'd say it was worth the wait. The spalting is quite pronounced and the general colour pattern ranges from golden to light brown. Measures 405mm x 158mm.
This piece has been treated with up to 5 coates of premier Danish Oil. Further applications are not usually necessary but will do no harm. Make sure the piece is dust free and apply the oil liberally with kitchen paper towel. Leave for five minutes and remove any excess with some dry paper towel. Allow to dry overnight. Repeat if necessary.
