    Walnut NE winged bowl

    Walnut winged bowl from a small crotch. The limb growing out the side had been cut or broke off at some time and the tree grew back around it. It's about 12" corner to corner, 2.5" tall, the bark was gone the second I turned the lathe on. Oil and lacquer finish.

    Curt,

    I see your transporter accidentally re-materialized a bowl into that flat piece of wood.

    Seriously, really nice piece.

    So...still got all your knuckles?

    That's a sweet bowl, Curt. Great wood, and I really like the bowl you found in it.

    Great looking bowl Curt! Getting the wings that uniform is hard. Well Done!

    Nice bowl Curt that was a great choice of wood and nice design choice to bring out the grain in the piece.
