  • My first Carole Rothman bowl... well jar

    I finally got Carole Rothman's ginger jar done today! Made from Alder with a shellac finish. I don't have the base finished, but I wanted to post the jar. A big THANK YOU to Carole for all the extra help with this!! I have been emailing and messaging with her for a couple weeks over the jar.


    (The penny is in the picture for my dad. It gives him an idea of what the size is)


    This is what Carole was helping me with:


    It wasn't very pretty!!! Everything was going good with it until I started trying to shape up to the lip. Carole was soooo patient with me and gave me such good advice!! It's hard to believe I got it too look as decent as it does!!! Thanks for looking!!

                    Great Save Cathy....When those darn things get out of round it's a pain to find the fix isn't it. I'd say you did a darn good job.
