I'm way behind on posting pics of this one. A few months before the Tour de Wood 2010, Tom Niemi asked me to make a bowl for him to give to his wife. We arranged to get some of Larry's Michigan chocolate shipped to SoCal, and I had this bowl waiting for Tom when he got here with the Tour. Actually, I made two bowls, and Tom got the pick of the litter. He did choose the better of the two. It's 17" x 10 1/4", and about 5 1/2" tall at the tips of the wings. The finish is my standard Formby's and PL buff, with Renaissance wax afterward.
Last I heard, Mrs. Niemi was happy with her new bowl. Opinions, suggestions, and finger-pointing are all welcome -
