    More Walnut Bowls

    Finished these up last night...the bigger one is just over 9" and the two natural edge ones are between 5 and 6" . Lost most of the bark on one and saved it on the other. Still need to turn off the tenons too, but thought I'd share now.

    Now I'm out of roughed out blanks ....

    Nice looking bowls! I like the natural edge bowls that maintain the bark on them. With having a monsoon season here in North Central Texas right now, I run out of ruffed blanks all the time. Three quarters of the time I can't even get out to my log yard without sinking 2" in mud. Oh, well. Get done what I can get done.
