    Walnut Bowls

    Well I cored these Monday and after a stressful last couple of weeks I needed it. Anyway cored these from a walnut log. They are 11 1/2" X 4 1/2", 8 1/2" X 3", and 6 1/2" X 2". Finished with polymerized tung oil. They will cure for another 3 weeks and then off to the customer.
