    Something a little different for me

    I started this long enough ago that I don't care to remember when, but I finally had time to finish it (minus final finish coat). I'm not sure about this shape of bowl and won't be doing anymore like it any time soon for two reasons. One, I can't get a worth while core out of it and two, I'm not crazy about it.
    Anyway, it's mesquite and about 13 1/2" x 5 1/4".
    Please feel free to critique. I know the pics stink, they looked slightly better before compressing enough to post.

    Ditto what Carol said. I think it looks nice, and the pics look fine on my monitors. I was looking at a blank on my lathe last night and thinking of turning something similar...ended up with a more traditional bowl shape (and wishing I had a coring rig, since another 2 or 3 bowls worth of wood ended up on the floor).

    I like these type of bowls. If the rim is cut very thin when wet the effect can be really dramatic. This guy specialises in them and I think has a piece on how he does them somewhere on his site.

    Interesting link, Pete. I found his "how-to" here. Always nice to see turners pick a direction and run with it.

    Kevin, if you don't like it, just send it to me. I think it's very cool... and it's Mesquite.

    Thanks everybody. I might just keep it for awhile and see if it grows on me.
