I turned this bowl from a piece of Walnut. It is about 1 3/4 high and 6 inches square. Finished with Tru-Oil

Tru-oil is a gun stock finish, it is made by Birchwood/Casey. It is great to work with and provides a durable glossy finish.

very nice bowl. Walnut is my favorite wood by far and that bowl really does it justice. I’ve never tried one like that, but will sometime soon. I have not been turning very long but I do have the bug, I find that when I am doing anything else in the shop now, I’m thinking about what I want to try next on the lathe. Well my rant is over. Again nice form.

Fantastic turning. Love the square turnings. More and more are showing up here. ( I have one I am finishing now)

Allways love Walnut. You have captured it’s natural beauty in this design.

Keep up the great work.

Love the square shape as well. I like the sweeping curves of the edges. Very nice work.

I tried turning one and kept getting my fingers hit. They aren’t as easy as some people think they are. But I have several glued up blanks that I plan to turn again and some will be square. One will be square with a round bowl attached.
