    Barkless/Burned Black Cherry NE

    15-1/2" x 10-1/2" x 7-1/2"

    Some large, wavy curl you can see some of in the last picture - a nice surprise.

    All comments are welcomed.

    Wow, you turn cherry, too? Here all this time I thought you were strictly a walnut kind of guy.


    Great bowl, Mark. Big ol' wings on it for sure.

    Mark,

    The bowl is spectacular and I love finding some wave when I wasn't expecting it.

    Great job,

    Gotta tell ya that that's where I want to be. The absence of bark doesn't matter a bit. Great job Mark!!!

    Nice work. I'm not sure about the burn treatment, but I think I like it. Dig the curl.

    Man, that is special!

    I love the burnt rim and those tall ends really accentuate the overall form. Great job on the thickness, too. I think the proportions are wonderful...at least to my eye.

    BTW, your pictures really display your pieces well. I'd love to know your exact set-up...camera type and settings, lighting arrangement, background, etc.

    Cody, I use what I know a few other guys are using... a 30" photo cube, a graduated background, and a couple of soft craft lights - one from the side and one from the top. My camera is a Kodak Z650. The whole setup is nothing very high-tech, for sure.
