Thread: A few bowls

    A few bowls

    Hi Guys,

    I finally got around to taking a couple pictures of some of the bowls I've done. All of these are either cherry or maple. The lighting is not very good for these pics, but it shows the general look.

    Let me know what you think!

    They look great. I especially like the second one.
    The photos look fine to me as well.

    Those are all very nice. Good finish, nice balance, and interesting wood.

    Well done!

    I agree...both look very nice. Great work, Dawson. That cherry bowl is gonna look especially sweet once the wood darkens a bit more. I'll bet it'll make the contrasting colors stand out even more.

    All really nice work, the 3rd one, is that some kind of Elm?

    Looks very similar to the Keyaki that I turn so much, which is in the Elm family.

    The fellow I got the wood from for the third one told me it was Black cherry. A lot of heartwood I think and then a bit of lighter colored sapwood on the outer edges.

    Wonderful bowls Dawson! That second one with the inclusions is my favorite!
