    12" Pecan Serving Bowl

    Finished this one up today and thought I would show it to you. Pecan simply has nice colors to it. As I usually do the wood was sealed with a couple of coats of walnut oil and then I finished it with several coats of my walnut oil/shellac mixture. The finishing coats were applied with at about 1000 rpm's. The bowl is 12" in diameter, 2 1/2" high, and 1 3/4" deep. Hope you like it.

    Photos are showing now (and weren't earlier for me either).

    I like the shape, it should work well as a serving or fruit bowl.

    Interesting piece of wood lots of grey in that one.

    I had the same thought. Hadn't seen pecan with that much grey.

    Sorry about the photos not showing up at first. Not sure what happened. Created the album and all the downloading photos to it and all that. Posted the thread and added the photos. A little bit later the album went away into cyberspace. Hope it enjoyed the ride! Anyway, thanks for the comments. This log seems to have a lot of that gray in it. You are right. Rather unusual for pecan.

    I see them now... weren't earlier... like the bowls... beautiful wood.

    I miss being able to walk out around a big ole pecan tree and picking up some of those Texas pecans.. We had a little tree by the drive way in Humble that had pecans bigger than your thumb... big ol' paper shells.

    Yeah, Chuck. Pecans are good eating. I do like the paper shells better than what most folks call the natives. Papershells are bigger and better tasting. Funny though. I'm on 35 acres and don't have a single pecan tree on it. Not even down by the creek that runs through it. Hmmmmph.

    I'm on half an acre and I have 7. One tree has at least 3 different varieties grafted into it. Best tasting pecans come from my native tree, but they are small and the shells are hard.
