    Maple NE

    No bark on this one, as you can see. I roughed this bowl out about two years ago and just now got back around to it. Found a little bit of curl down inside and some nice grain/color, IMO.

    10" x 8" x 6" and antique oil was used for the finish.

    Feel free to speak your mind.

    Well Mark, the voices in my head speak my mind all the time, but you probably dont want to hear what they have to say.

    However, that's a great-looking bowl. I like the uneven heights of the wings...it's something different, but still aesthetic. Great job.

    I like it, it has a very......... "organic" feel to it, almost like it was grown that way, not turned. The shape is such, with the wings etc that it does not look "Turned".

    Great piece!

    Mark,
    I don't know if I would have the balls to do something like that right now being a newbie. The sound of that turning would scare me to all heck.

    I love it it's gorgeous.

    Mark another beauty. Did you burn the edges? I really like the wood and the uneven edges. Great job.

    Doesn't look like walnut.

    Otherwise it is a great bowl!
