    Burr Oak Bowl on a Stand

    I liked how this one turned out, so I decided to try another out of bur oak. I didn't take a pic of the back, but it comes to a small point and is also ebonized on the bottom. The base is from the same piece of rough sawn oak I stole from my dad's wood stash back in KS and the rod is also brass. This one is about 15" tall with the bowl about 8" in diameter. I used the lancelot carver to make the grooves and then cut them back some witht he lathe running. I also once again apologize for the poor cell phone pic.

    Comments and critques always welcome!

    I like this sort of thing. One day I'll have a workshop that won't fall apart if I try it. Maybe I could do a small one. Get as good as this I'll be a happy turner

    Pretty cool. This is kind of a new demension for turning. More like turning pictures. This could go into all kinds of things, different texturing, dyeing, segmenting....

    Thanks for the comments guys. I've wanted to do something like this for a long time.

    I hope some local people like it too as I have a show this weekend. The show includes me doing woodturning demos on Friday night and Saturday afternoon...should be fun and a learning experience for sure!
