    Small walnut bowl.

    A while back Fellow Wood Turner and all around good guy George Conklin gave me some walnut. One of my Christmas present from LOML was a gift card for Woodcraft. I used the card to get a new 1/2" gouge and then I used the gouge to turn this bowl.

    The bowl is 6 1/2"x 2" and has two coats of clear poly. It needs a bit more sanding a few more coats of poly. Thanks for the wood George. I'll be turning some of the bigger piece now that I got some time.

    Very fine. I have four bowl gouges and haven't gotten the hang of using them. I might end up doing all my bowls with a big scraper.

    Nice bowl don. Looks like you have some worm holes on the bottom - adds character and the edge detail looks great.
