    Simple Walnut Bowl

    I needed a turning fix this weekend, between yard work and bear watching I needed a break. So, I went out to my wood storage and saw this 12x12 piece of walnut I brought from NC in my wood survival stash. There was a bark inclusion that went about 2/3 of the way through the center of the blank along the entire length. I some how managed to keep it together with copious amounts of CA and Verdigris Embossing powder. Some how I managed not to turn away the feather that accompanied the inclusion. Finish is Dr Workshop Walnut Oil with Wax. Overall diameter is 12"

    Thanks for looking

    Man, that is a beautiful hunk of wood and a great bowl!

    What you should have done was to put a plastic lid (or anything else disposable) on it and sent it to me in the "Box Swap."

    Enjoy,

    Can't really tell is the crack filled? Very nice bowl, but does look scary to turn.

    That is beautiful Nate. Pucker factor came in on that one but it sure did come out nice.
