Natural edge walnut bowl

This a walnut bowl about 12 inches across. It was one of the tougher pieces to turn, it had a dry spot running through it, might have been struck by lightning several years ago. Made for an interesting piece. I used half a bottle of CA to keep the bark from pealing off as it dried. Finished with wipe on poly, waxed and buffed.

That is one of the nicest pieces of wood I have seen. Great work. Contrast of black and white is stunning

I’m not usually a fan of natural edge bowls but this one is stunning. The contrast between the heart and sap wood is great. The shape of the edge is great. I love it.

The log you used was probably the ugliest thing on earth and most would throw it on the fire. Great thing about turning, cutting into a log and turning it down is like opening a present on Xmas morning. I am a fellow turner and appreciate what it takes to turn a piece like this without it exploding in your face.
