This is the second bowl in my “Logs to bowls” series which highlights the natural bark and wood grain. This bowl was made from one half of an Osage Orange log. The vibrant yellow grain is offset by the deep orange/red bark. Like the other bowls in this series I turn a bowl in a bowl to create a symetrical element in a non-symetrical piece of wood. I have also cut a 10 degree slope on each end to present more of the end-grain when viewing the bowl from various angles.

The bowl is finished with Shellac and Danish Oil.

Looks great!

I love Osage.

I do have one small question though.

But how do you turn a bowl into a bowl when it is already a bowl?
