    Black Cherry

    Another piece of wood that I've had sittin' on the rack for a long time. An old limb ran thru this piece on a diagonal. I don't normally put big feet on bowls, but this one felt right to me. I think it works okay with the void left by the limb, elevating it enough to show it off... but just my opinion.

    I think you're right. The shape of the bowl looks much better than if it was on a flat base. Love the hole too.

    nice bowl....

    It is deer season here in SW MO... The hole was made by a drunk deer hunter a few years ago...

    That is a beauty Mark.

    Sorry but don't think it will hold soup or ice cream.

    I think the foot works perfectly with this one. Great bowl, even if it does leak.

    (Ya know with a little epoxy and coffee grounds you could patch that puppy right up.)

    Or even ground up cherry pits.

    Very nice looking bowl. The hole adds to it's character.
    And, what do you have against big feet?

    I agree the foot looks great with the shape. Well Done.

    don't let those nasty characters get you down mark, big feet shows that it has a firm understanding. that is almost the perfect popcorn bowl, you can shove all the unpopped kernels out the bottom...
