I was doing some sketches and came up with this idea to make a pea pod shaped bowl with three wooden peas. I haven’t made the peas yet… but will soon i hope. In trying to figure out how to make it, I remembered a technique that I saw Michael Hosaluk do last year at Anderson Ranch where he turns a bullet shape, splits it down the middle and scoops out the inside to make a long bowl. So, I turned a wavy, undulating shape and tried a similar technique to create my pea pod.
This bowl is made from a 12” diameter x 36” long unseasoned Sugar Maple Log. After carving, I let it dry for a while and finished it with Milk Paint and Microcrystalline Wax.
thanks for looking!
