    Walnut Bowl

    I finished this one up over the weekend. A friend asked for a good sized bowl for a mother's day gift for his wife. It's about 12" in diameter adn 7" tall. Finish is my homebrew danish oil. There's a couple of areas of tear out I couldn't get completely fixed but I'm pretty happy with it. I sent him a pic of it and he said liked what he saw...delivering it today.
