    Winged Bowl in Burl

    Today I went into the workshop to do something completely different but instead came out with this small winged bowl. I have an end table on the block that I haven't quite started so... You may remember a platter I made back in September that had some remarkable burl figure in it. I still have a couple chunks so I made this today out of one of the chunks. The remaining chunks though are quite small. This bowl is W-120 x L-280 x H-22mm. The finish is BLO/Tung/Poly mix polished out with the Beal system.

    Al, that is really nice!

    Must have been some wind coming off of that one when you were turning it

    Ya probably I should be saving these projects for the summer when we can all use that cool breeze.

    Beautiful knuckle buster, Alex! I love the color variation in that burl.

    Beautiful work Alex! Great looking burl! I really like the elongated form and the clean detail lines to highlight the 'lip' area of the bowl! Really outstanding work Alex!

    Very nicely done. The wood certainly has a lot of depth to it in that top photograph. Probably wasn't that fun to sand though.

    Rob the wood looks quite three dimensioal after applying a finish. Probably the most dynamic wood I have turned. Sanding wasn't that bad.

    That is beautiful. Looks scary to turn! The smaller stuff would make some nice pens, if you are into that sort of thing.

    That's top-shelf! Nice use of the rings to accent the rim.
