All the girls say Wally is great looking, but very shallow. :-)

Almost missed this. Very pretty result.
How are you making your foot?

Joe, I love the grain pattern inside the bowl and on the bottom. A very beautiful turning. I also love the design, but do find myself wondering that with such a small foot, if something’s placed on one side of Wally, does he keep his balance?

Thanks for all the kind remarks. I really appreciate them all.

Rick, I have not tried that finish. Thanks for the suggestion.

Grumpy, I used a face plate to turn the outside and foot. I then gripped the foot to turn the inside.

Bob, the foot was turned while mounted on the face plate. It is always a delicate balance when gripping the foot between too much pressure and not enough, especially when it is so small.

Martin, Wally remains balanced with most items. He prefers form over function.

Charlie, the girls do think Wally is shallow, but the ladies are impressed with his girth.
