    Natural Edge Bowls

    Been some time since I have posted any work, so here you go. The open form natural edge bowl is walnut approximately 10 inches in diameter and 5 inches high. The closed/HF is walnut approximately 12 inches in diameter and 6 inches high at the high side. Comments are welcome.

    I really like those Wayne, thanks for posting. Cutting the hollow form must have been something, I'd have embedded bark in my chest.

    Both are real nice, but the hollow form is extra nice. Great job, Wayne.

    Wayne,

    Great job. While both are really pleasing to the eye, I think the HF is truly a work of art.

    Look forward to some more.

    Wow, those are both nice. But that closed form with the bark on top is really an interesting piece. It must be bark only for the top two thirds. I really like that one.

    What everyone else said.

    I don't recall ever seeing a HF with an entire bark top like that one. It's very unique and really eye-catching.
