This hollow form is turned from end grain walnut. It measures approximately 6 inches tall by 7 inches wide. It is finished with aniline dye, wipe-on poly and tinted liming wax.

All comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.

Ms. Debbie P, I remember you getting harassed for painting a piece of walnut. This one is for you…

Very Nice piece. I like how the liming wax highlights the pores. As usual your form perfect. Painting is better than burning like I once saw someone doing. I near had a heart attack.

This is another nice piece, Joe. And it is aptly named as it is as unique as Deb is.

I really like the way the color turned out on that. It’s solid, and it stands out.

This one is quite beautiful Joe. I like the slightly less pronounced lip and the symetry between bottom and top. I also like that the walnut color comes through as well as the beautiful grain. Very lovely.

Wait a minute we need the floppy ears to really look like Debbir P.

Great looking piece.

Another great piece, i’ve never been a fan of colouring, but I think you’ve inspired me to give it a go. Do you completely hollow out? What tools/process do you use?. . I have a few for hollowing but my favorite is the Rolly Munrow articulated hollowing tool.

Thanks for all the comments. I appreciate them all.

Yes, they are completely hollowed out. They are all hollowed freehand. I use the Trent Bosch 5/8” straight and bent.

Nice bowl. Not sure about painting walnut though.
