Wedge Oak Bowl

This bowl is made from clack oak I picked up locally (There is no shortage of oak trees locally). When I put a piece of wood on the lathe I try to have a basic shape in mind of what I would like the bowl to look like. It doesn’t always work out the way I want (it should but…..). As I started cutting the log there was a section of wood once the bark that was cracked. It was not visible from the outside of the log until the bark was taken off. I hate wasting wood so I let the wood dictate what the shape should be and this is what I came up with. Any feedback or comments are welcome.

Interesting Shape!

I really like your thoughts of allowing the wood to dictate the end results. Who are we to try and outguess Mother Nature!

I agree Lew mother nature has laid out that tree in all of her beauty, who are we to try to change it.

nice finish, very smooth inside and out. I also like the crisp corner on the o.d.

Very nice bowl. Great job. I also like to have a patern to start with. My problem is I am better at recovery then at execution. ( I make mistakes and change design mid way through) haha

Mother nature allway knows what is best. This turned out very nice.

Keep it up.

Yes Jim it is different, surely not what I intended on when I started out.
