    Salad Bowl

    Hi guys, how does this shape fit in with your ideas of a Salad Bowl, I have tended to make much flatter shapes in the past or open curves as can be seen on This Sheet but have a feeling this might be nearer the mark.

    _________
    ________Beech (225mm dia [8-7/8"]) Food safe oil finish.

    Critiques welcome, if you think the proportions need modifying.

    Basically formed within the curvature of the existing log segment, green turned and dried before finishing.

    Oh! You mean Potato Crisps, greedy comes to mind.


    For a minute there I was wondering why you would want to fill it with French Fries.

    Truthfully, I find this bowl to be very pleasing with a great form. It looks like it sets very stable. Well done

    I really like that. The shape (to my eye) is just right for salad.

    cheers eh?

    Chas,

    Very nice. Wish I could make walls like that. Love the form and the finish...

    There's only one problem: I am, by nature, shamelessly larcenous. And I need a birthday present for a treasured employee, by Monday. And you linked up to your other work. So I'm remorselessly stealing your design from here:



    You can, of course, stop me, but you'll have to fly all the way across the pond to do it!

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Go ahead Bill, I copied it from La Truciola in the first place.

    Chas, you made me go back and find your location. Yep, crispy bowl, don't want the grease of french fries getting into that there wood!

    It is a very nice bowl and hope someday to be able to find the nerve to try one. Mine are very shallow and thick sided yet.

    I like this one a lot, Chas. I prefer the rounder shape of this bowl...excellent job in my book.

    Great bowl Chas. It should serve it's intended purpose quite well - and look good doing it.

    The crisp/chip conundrum reminds me of my first trip to your fine country. I just finished checking in at the airport hotel with a bad case of jet lag. The patient man at check-in told me the lifts were to the left. I thanked him and promptly asked where the elevators were. Before he could answer, I shook my head and wandered off to the lifts. He just smiled.
