    Rectangle bowl......

    A "friend", and I use that term loosely, pointed me to Mark Placek's website filled with amazing square and rectangle bowls.

    How hard can it be I thought, just some scraps, glue, and clamps. Well, it's also patience and precision...both of which I lack....but here is my first attempt. ..... 7 1/4 x 11 1/2 x 1 3/4....one coat AO, buffed. Walnut, Jarrah, Redheart.

    ANY and ALL comments appreciated.

    Beautiful bowl Barry. When I first looked at the photo the blank looked bigger than what it is and was wondering how you got it to move! Nice color too

    Still got all your knuckles?

    That came out looking real nice, Barry. Great way to use up the leftover flat wood from days gone by, too.

    I've seen this sort of thing done as wallhangings. Look really effective. Must be dificult thinking ahead how the different coours will turn out. Way beyond me at the moment I'm afraid.

    Great work Barry on a great looking piece. I don't call that a square bowl. I call the a punker bowl.

    Thanks folks!

    And YES, all fingers are still attached. I've been on a roll lately of keeping all my body parts on the "right" side of the tool rest
