    Some more oak

    Here is another winged bowl out of oak.

    Before you all notice the visable tool marks, I will point out they were left on purpose. I couldn't get them to show as well in the photo, but in person I think the look good....we will have to see if others think so. The rim and bowl are smooth as a babies bottom. The bowl is also slightly under cut as well. 11" wide and about 5" tall finish is watco oil.

    I like it... but sure looks like a real knuckle buster to turn.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.

    Now, that one I like a lot. The Oak really lends itself well to the primitive look of the wings. The bark inclusion, natural edges and cracks all work well together. Thanks for showing.

    Hi Jeff.
    That's a beatiful and original bowl! I like the somewhat "rough" finish and the fact of contrasting round with square.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Looking good, Jeff. Have you considered cutting a bead or sharp (shallow) groove to accent the transition from the rough part to the smooth part? Something like that would "frame" the smooth center, and make it more obvious that the rougher part is intentional.

    Vaughn, great minds think alike, I have one in the works with just that detail.

    Thanks for all the comments and Chuck, I managed to miss my knuckles....this time.
