    Walnut Bowl

    This is from the other half of this wedding gift bowl. Not quite as amazing looking grain on this side, but still some great figure! 11" wide and 4" high with a danish oil finish.

    Comments/critiques please!

    Very nice, Jeff. That's some real nice wood, and you did a good job with it. I think I'd prefer a smaller foot, but that's just a personal taste thing that makes it a bit less usable.

    I see you went high risk and tried a thin-walled bowl this time.

    Just kidding...looks like this one still has some nice heft to it.

    There is a small 2" or so in diameter foot on it. Can't see it real well with the cloth the bowl is sitting on. High risk is right...about 1/2" walls.

    Great looking bowl Jeff. I do like the thinner walls. I like mine around 1/4". Well done.
