    Yup ... I sure do like this one !!

    It seems that walnut has a special look and contrast that lends itself so well to natural edge bowls.

    cheers eh?

    Mark, once again well done Do you apply anything to help the bark stay in place or do you just have great luck with it?

    Jeff, sometimes I use some CA on the bark when it looks suspect. But on this wood - recently cut, bark is pretty tight - I just whittle it on down w/o doing anything extra.

    For some reason, I'd recognize that as one of your pieces from across a room, Mark. Another fine, fine job.

    Mark, one day I might get the bark to stay on mine (I know, it has to do with the time of year it was harvested, but beggars can't be choosers). Well done as usual.
