I turned this bowl yesterday afternoon/evening. The wood pretty much dictated the shape because of a defect in the wood and wanting to keep the height. I figured I would make it an experiment and see how I liked it. It is a piece of mesquite that is about 8.5 inches in diameter and about 4 inches high. The piece is a consistent 1/4 inch think except bottom because I did not feel like hollowing down into the foot. It is finished in Watco Danish Oil and I plan after a few weeks of cure time spraying with lacquer.
I really tried to keep radius's consistent and flowing into each other. Now one of these day's I need to figure out how to take a decent picture.
All in all I kind of like the way it turned out.
Thanks for looking
