    NE Walnut winged dish

    This is turned from a piece of old weathered walnut firewood. Lots of cracks but pretty solid in the bowl part. It's about 10" across at the widest, 3/8" thick in the wings. Finished with AO and the waxed with briwax.

    Very cool, Curt. Not bad at all for an ugly ol' piece of firewood, huh?

    Great looking piece!
    Has lots of character.
    Well done.

    Nice piece there! Looks like it would go with a lot of the rustic architecture I've seen up there. Very creative and nicely done.

    Beautiful bowl and more important NO SCREAMS caused by the propellers.
