    This Walnut NE is about 9" x 6" x 5", finished with AO and Beall buffed.

    Any and all comments/critiques/suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Great bowl, Barry. The wood and finish are beautiful and the bark survived very well. I think I'd prefer a bit smaller foot with a proportionally reduced lower part of the bowl, but that's just one guy's opinion.

    Real nice stuff, though. I hope to be able to do a NE bowl this nice some day.

    Oh yeah Barry, great bowl, I'm agree with Vaughn's remark, but also this is the opinion of another person, we all have our own view how to do it, right.
    Keep em going.

    Yowzers, that sure is a pretty bowl. Did the bark pose any problems when turning? Did you have to do anything to it to keep it on?

    Something tells me this was not done on the mini lathe eh

    VERY nice, the flaring out of the NE is really spectacular, what a nice chunk of wood!

    GREAT job!

    Really??? I was told you could turn anything on the mini.



    Just joking, I knew that. I'm just having a had time visualing how the blank looks to end up with the lip/rim looking like that with the bark on it.

    Thanks folks!

    Alex, I know so little about this stuff that everything poses a problem to me Mark Cothren get the credit for any good in this bowl as it was roughed out in his shop on his lathe under his watchful eye by me. I get credit for the too straight spots, sanding scratches and poor photo quality

    Randy, here's a pic of a little NE ash bowl I turned a few months ago. Bottom is done and I'm getting ready to hollow the inside.

    Wow - that's some beautiful wood! Looks like you used as much of that blank as you possibly could! Great color, nice size and love the amount of bark! Nice work Barry!
