This simple, black walnut bowl is 8.5” x 4.5” and is finished with orange oil and beeswax. An exterior bead and slight undercut on the rim gives it a little more tactile interest. Wall thickness is around 3/8”, although it’s a little thicker right at the rim.

Beautifully executed! I like the deep full round shape and the bead adds a nice dimension to a really beautiful piece of wood!

Thanks all.

I didn’t realize there were any Vavras in BC, Kimosawboy. Most of my extended family is in Nebraska.
