    First Natural Edge Bowl

    I'm blaming Mark Cothren for all of this. I'll let the pics do the talking...I don't think I've posted the progress pics here.

    Then, after a few weeks of drying, then finish turning and finishing, it looks like this...

    This was my first NE bowl, and not only did Mark Cothren send me the wood, he gave me a lot of tips on getting it to work out. In case you hadn't guessed, it's walnut. It's 14" long by 10 1/2" wide, and 5" tall at the tip of the wings. Finished with Antique Oil and buffed with tripoli and wax. I'd say it's my favorite bowl to date. Challenging, but rewarding. A big tip o' the hat to Brother Mark.

    Super

    So, what do you think about the NE bowls, like them?

    Keep them coming!
