    Dunno Wood Winged Bowl

    My brother in law told me his neighbors took down a tree, he didn't know what kind and they weren't home to ask so I'm not sure what kind of wood this is, but it sure turns nice and I got a big load of it!

    Bowl is about 4" high and 9" at its widest. Had to glue a small portion of the bark. Finish is once again watco danish oil. I turned this about a month ago all at one time. It has warped a little, but not that much.

    Way cool. Jeff. You'll get a lot of "how'd you do that?" questions when people see that bowl.

    Real nice, Jeff! Very interesting color in that wood.
    Do the photos show the color accurately?

    Gord, the second pic does show the color accurately...maybe just a little less yellow than in the first one though. Otherwise right on.

    Ad, I do have a scar on one of my fingers from this bowl. I ended up putting painters tape on the corners so I could see them better after the knuckle boo boo.

    Nice work Jeff! Looks like it is moving even when sitting still! Lots of flow to it! I'm sure it is a great conversation piece! Nice work!

    Great looking bowl Jeff. Yep I did a couple and the pucker factor is right up there. As Bill G. would say do not let your pinkys get behind the tool rest.
