    Sweet Gum bowl

    I love turning sweet gum when I get a piece with nice color, this bowl not quite 12 inches dia. The picture of the inside matches the actual color, the bottom picture is pretty poor.

    Great work, Dennis. I'd have loved a closer look at the foot detail.

    Nice.
    Was there a lot of hand work putting the feet on?

    I agree, great looking bowl. I would also like to hear some details on how the feet were done.

    that is some "SWEET" Gum... that makes up for all the mess the balls make!

    Great looking bowl. Really nice rim treatment and the feet really stand out.
