    Walnut NE.....

    Still working on the walnut I scored last November

    This one is 10 1/4" x 7 1/2" and is 4 1/2" tall at the tips. Walls are just under shy of 3/8". AO finish, not buffed yet.

    Really like how the sapwood plays with the light throughout the piece! Great contrast! Very pretty wood! Nice job on keeping all the bark on!

    Wow Barry, when did you start turning?

    That bowl's about as good as it gets. Excellent stuff there, bud.

    Very nice work there Barry... beautiful form and color variation.

    I'm supposed to get some Walnut here in the near future... it's gonna have to wait a few more weeks before I can lift, but hopefully mine will look as good as what you have here...

    Be sure to repost after you've buffed it out.. anxious to see finished piece.

    Beautiful Barry, Like Steve said the contrast of the dark and light wood is wonderful.
