This is a 10” wide by 8” deep and 1/8th” to 3/8ths” thick on the bottom, made from a great piece of Black Walnut Burl. The Wood was cut in Dec. of 2009 from a dead but still standing tree. This pieces was a chunk from the basal flair. The wood was roughed out to 1” thick a straight sided cylander and put up in the drying racks, I needed a jam chuck to finish another very deep bowl and this was just the right size. I finished the other bowl and still had this in my Nova chuck, and I was looking for my next project and beings how this was chucked I went ahead and shaped it . The wood is finished with three coats of Tung Oil, Table Top Varnish, Mineral Spirits, a coat of Bees Wax and a top coat of Carnuba Wax. The title of the bowl was a result of a recent trip to the Barber, She shaves the back of my neck but I have to crane my head forward to straighten out the fat rolls the bowl reminded my of that experience.
