    Walnut................again

    Don't look so surprised.........

    Feel free to comment/critique/suggest/opine...

    12" wide and 5" tall. The rim tapers down quickly to about 1/2" or so. Antique oil and buffed.






    This one ended up 15" x 11" x 6" and is ~1/4" thick from wingtip to bottom. Antique oil and buffed.

    Love them both Mark, and the rim on the first one is great, how did you achieve that?

    WOW!!!!
    I opened the thread and my eyes popped out. What a great looking bowl. Just great. Simple form, great combo of grain and the rim treatment, just great. GREAT PIECE...

    Mark!!

    comment - looking at the first picture, I couldn't tell it was a bowl--it looked like a platter - either way, I love it

    critique - it's a very functional shape - much like a dough bowl from the 1700s - I like the rim

    suggest - send it to me so I can inspect it thoroughly and ...

    commment, critique, and opine further about it (That'll be the day)

    Beautiful, Mark,

    Mark those are beautiful pieces. I like the form and finish on both. The bowl rim is nice. Well done.

    Great job on both pieces Mark - as usual. Walnut trees must quake in fear when you show up.

    Mark - very impressive work - again! The NE is amazing. Great form, color and lots of bark! The bowl is what I would call a show-stopper! Love the color variations, form, and the burn detail on the rim! Seriously - this is one very nice bowl!
