Thread: A couple mulberry burl bowls

  1. #1

    A couple mulberry burl bowls

    Just a couple bowls I finished a while back. I thought I'd lost the pictures, and since I don't have the bowls anymore, thought they were gone forever. Enjoy. Both are less than 1/4" thick, sanded to 600, then finished with multiple coats antique oil varnish, buffed with 3M white synthetic steel wool.

    4.5" dia. by 3" deep.

    8" dia. by 5" deep.

    You have a good sense of form. Lot of things happening with those, all good.

    Very nice, Nate. Great wood, and I like what you did with both pieces.

    Thanks for the compliments folks. The foot on the smaller bowl is a rarity for me. I've probably made less than 10 bowls with defined bases, and half of those were because the bowl was too thin to remove the tenon. Both here and on another forum, I've gotten compliments on the footed bowl. It was a present to an artist friend, who absolutely loved it, so its good to hear it from other people too. Thanks guys.
