« Part 18: ... More pecan. A bowl this time. Part 19 of My lathe journeys. series Part 20: ... was gonna turn a vase, ended up with a cup! :-) »

More bowls, more practice. Here’s another with pecan over maple. This one is 7” tall and 6” wide at the top. These first 3 pix are with just 2 coats of Danish oil.

And these 3 shots are after 3 coats of spray lacquer was put on.

Did you notice that big flat side on the rim? That happened when my tool caught a crack and sent a big chunk flying. At first I was tempted to throw it against the wall, but thought I’d try to see if I could save it in some way. Didn’t turn out too bad.

As usual, thanks for looking. Comments, critiques and complaints always welcomed :-)

Well that’s just beautiful work Joe. You keep surprising me with the quality of your turning.

At first I thought that flat spot was for getting it closer to the wall for storage. I have it’s matching brother if your interested. Seriously, it’s an original and gives off a lot of character. That Pecan sure has nice color and grain.
Great finish.

That’s funny Dave.
And yeah I really like what’s coming out of that pecan. Wish I had more but I only have 1 or 2 slabs left. So soon it’ll be gone.

That’s real nice, Joe. That’s all I have to say about that.
Except for this: When you run out of of the Pecan, I’m sure you’ll find some equally exciting domestic exotic that some hillbilly thinks is firewood.
