Thought I would make a quick open segmented bowl for a wedding present. It took me about 10 days to make this and about 2 weeks to get the finish right. Normally, I would spray a lacquer finish on but I really like the look and feel of a hand rubbed Tung Oil. So I used the Tung Oil. What a chore, the oil got down into the openings and it was a lot of hard work to clean up and smooth; however, I do like the final look. The bowl is large, I hope it will be used as a center piece on formal dining table; maybe some fruit inside. It is 7 1/2 inches tall and 18” across at the top, 4” at the base. Made form Black Walnut and Hard Maple.
