    Something different (for me)

    I don't do bowls that often so this was a bit of a departure. Also it has no holes or bark.

    Spalted beech, 9" dia. 2 1/2" deep and roughly 5mm thick. Finished with wax polish but not buffed to a shine




    Critoque welcome as always

    Pete, I like this a lot. The rim looks like it would be easy to hold onto.

    Great looking bowl Pete. I like the way you finished off the bottom as well.

    Very classy, Pete!

    A very pleasing form and beautiful wood.

    As always great work.
    i picked up some beech a while back not spalted but i sealed one end and left the unsealed end in the dirt hoping it would spalt. I hope if it does it looks as good as yours.

    Yes, really nice.
    You guys are making me want to dust off the lathe and give it another try.

    Very nice bowl, Pete. Looks like you still know the process, even if you don't turn many bowls. I didn't know you even had access to wood without holes or bark.

    Great looking bowl Pete. I like the way the lip roles over, and the bottom is as nice as the top.
