    Black Walnut

    Getting ready for a show and decided to try something different to see if it might appeal to someone. My wife likes it, so hopefully someone else will, too. The bowl is about 9" wide and about 3" deep. Comments of all flavors are welcomed.

    Remember the tea kettle - it is always up to its neck in hot water, yet it
    still sings!

    Sheesh! Some people will do anything to get out of sanding.

    I really like this one, Mark. I've thought of doing something similar...now that you've done it I may just have to try it myself.

    I'm sure I have seen someone else do this before - probably more than one... I don't typically come up with original ideas...

    Mark, beautiful! The contrast between the finishes is great.

    Well Larry, here you have another excuse to fall into the spinning vortex, but... then you might catch colds if you didn't burn it

    Sorry for thread hijack Mark, I like the contrast of the surfaces, I think you've got a good seller piece there.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    I do things like this though I don't think I've posted any here.

    Think I prefer yours to this one


    I love these pieces with contrasting texture and Vaughan, the sanding is harder than with an ordinary piece believe me. Sometimes it's hard not to ruin the 'rough texture' and miss it.
