Here is a Walnut bowl I did last week. Waas going to take this to the Arizona Picnic and forgot it. Then I forgot I had not posted it yet. haha

It is 5 1/2 inch diam. X 3 inch tall. Turned to 3/16 thick. 4 coats of hand wipe poly sanded to 400 and 0000 steel wool between coats.

Hope you like it. Thanks for looking.

Please leave all comments and critiques.

Nice to see you back on the lathe.

Walnut just has to be my favourite wood. I really like the way you did the undercut rim. Your finish is great.

A very nice bowl. The dimensions on it are unique. It’s like a “no spill bowl”. Very nice.
