    Another Walnut NE

    Here's another I finished up the other day. Arkysaw walnut about 8" long, 7" at widest, and almost 6" tall. Walls are a fat 3/8".....or skinny 1/2" Finish is AO and Beall buffed (skipped White wheel). I'm not pleased with the foot/bottom, but like the flared top.







    Any and all comments/critiques welcome. Thanks.

    Cool stuff, Barry. I really like the random shape of the rim on this one. Don't see a lot like that.

    This one grabs your attention! Very nice! Like Vaughn I like the way the edge of the bowl varies! Also like how you added some knots just below the bark line - nice touch! Again - great color - great finish! Nice work!

    Oh wow, that is perdy!

    Love the rim, looks like a wooden flower, sort of.

    The base looks OK, what do you not like about it?

    Keep them coming!

    Barry that is a beauty. I like the different shape. Nice wood, nice form and finish.

    I could/should have made the foot smaller and done better on the transition from side wall to base.
