    Spalted gum winged bowl

    This is the first winged bowl i ever tryed.It's 3 1/2 x 12 1/2 at the largest tips of the wings. Just 2 coats of rattle can laquar on so far. looking at the last pic i'm woundering if i should of made the bowl a little less deep? It did warp some also but i figured for this kind of bowl it still looked alright. As always all comments welcome.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.

    Don't no about that as it was just the uglist thing i could find ouy in the back woods. Heck i've never even made a pepper mill or a bottle stoper. I still think of my self as a rookie.

    Yea man i love it when a plan comes together. I had actually found 2 pieces that i thought might be good but one had way to many critters in it. it went back in the woods where it came from

    Great job, Steve. Those flat wings are quite a challenge, huh? Looks like you handled them well.
