Second bowl made from a small piece of Huayruro wood from South America that I picked up at a local Woodcraft. Very hard wood, had to keep sharpening the tools every few minutes. It really finished well with only burnishing and some bees wax and orange oil. It is sitting on a small unturned piece of the same wood.

Nice bowl and wood Cindy. The top rings are slightly reminiscent of a piston. Is that a coincidence? Just teasing. Good work.

No, but it is a good observation. I just wanted something to offset the grain in the wold

Lovely Bowl!

At first I thought you left the bottom “natural”, thinking that would be a unique way to finish the piece. Then realized the bottom was “finished”. Either way, I like it!

Now that you’ve already cut the lands in the piston, go ahead and turn four rings to fit the lands and leave about .003” end gap per inch of bore! Just kidding! Really nice bowl-I especially like the figure of the wood I can’t pronounce. What are the overall dimensions of the bowl? Keep on keeping on!

Fantastic turning. The shape is unique. With your background it appears your subconsience got the better of the design. haha

Great design. Great job.

Keep it up.
