    Hackberry Serving Bowl

    This is a bit different in style, but I thought it came out nice. Lots of neat coloration to it being it's hackberry. Where some of my thinking on the basic shape was that there are probably a lot of people who don't have all that much room on their dining table and need a larger capacity bowl. Well, this fits that just fine. It is 12 1/4" in diameter, 5 3/4" high, and 4 3/4" deep. It will hold a lot of stuff, and as the late great George Carlin said, "Everybody has to have a place to put their stuff!" Anyway, this bowl will hold a lot, has some decent curvature to it, and a nice solid foot to prevent possible tipping. It was sealed as I always do with walnut oil and then polished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture. Hope you all like it.

    Nice bowl there Dave, I like the shape of it.

    It looks a lot better then the hackberry funnel I made yesterday.

    Had a really nice piece about 7" diameter and was all finished, good looking bowl, then proceeded to cut the bottom out when I took the tenon off.

    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.
