    Dragon bowl.

    This is a piece of spalted white oak that I spun... I like the way the bowl turned out... in the spalting I found a "Dragon's Head" hence the name... the bowl is about 8 1/2 inches diameter by 3 1/2 inches high and again finished with polyurethane.

    Can you see the dragon's head?

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Hi Chuck! Nice looking bowl! I think I saw the dragon head on the 4th photo on the backside of the inside. Right? Knowing me, wrong. But nonetheless a great looking bowl. Your white oak has much the same coloration as the live oak I turn. Again, good looking bowl.

    You see a dragon, I see a St. Bernard shaking its wet head. Either way, great looking bowl Chuck.

    Looks great, Chuck. I especially like the grizzly bear holding the salmon in its mouth.

    Well I sure like the bowl but the only dragon I see is that I need to stop dragon my butt and get some more turning done now that I'm actually back home for a while!

    I see it in photo #3, blending together the back side and the front side of the bowl...
    There's usually more than one way to do it... ........
