I carved out this bowl with an adze, axe, and gouges. I did power sand it cuz hand sanding was not going to happen. I think the wood is ash but I’m really not 100% about that. There is a lot of spalting on this bowl and I thing it came out pretty well. Thanks for looking!

Nice practical design, and I like the variations in the grain.

Great finish.
Looking good.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Like Ivan, I thought it looked very old also. I even thought it looked “primitive” and great if you like to pick up your bow with two hands and drink the leftover broth… Nice work!

Interesting with the two handles, something one can’t do on a lathe. I thought soup bowl too.

I do NOT think it came out “pretty good”; I think it came out GREAT!

Waaay more work than I want to put into it!!!! I always envied guys who can do work with old style tools.

It makes you appreciate the work the old timers put into everything they made.

Great job!!!

I like how you used the adze and gouge. Very Scandinavian.

Have your say...
