I got this piece of (slightly) spalted walnut, recently and turned it into a 10 1/2 inch shallow bowl. I gave it a textured rim (textured with a dremel carving bit), and added a bit of gilt cream to give it a bit of a copper-look. Not the most exciting project on here, but I was really pleased with how it turned out and thought I’d share.

This is a good looking bowl and I love the wood.

agreed, very nicely done. If I gave that to my wife she would immediately fill it with Hershey Kisses.

Thanks! I got lucky with this piece of wood. The figure made it turn out a lot better than my skill could have.
