Osage Orange Bowl, 10” round by 8” deep and a 1/4” thick. bowl was finished with 3 costs of lacquer. This bowl was turned in a session with one of my students. He got to take the bowl home with him to give to his wife. hope they enjoy the bowl.

Beautiful bowl. Where did you get the Osage? I just posted a box project that I used Osage in. It’s great stuff. I really like the bright yellow when you first cut it. The shape of your bowl is really nice too. It looks like it would be very comfortable in the hand. Thanks for posting!

Jeff, This is some lovely wood! You are generous to give this to your student and he certainly will remember his lessons.
