As you’ll see in subsequent projects, I’ve been playing around with textures and techniques. Not all are successful, but I learn from each endeavor. How does that quote go about venturing into craftsmanship of uncertainty? Anyway, in this bowl I tried a bit more of a closed form. The walls are a bit thick to accommodate the beads and surface carving. I first turned the beads and then carved the spiraling cross hatching. The interior of the bowl is ebonized.

In retrospect, the red oak root wood is a bit rustic for the adornment. It was difficult to make even beads (part the wood’s fault and mostly my shortcomings), and the natural edge detracts from the beads. I’m already envisioning this form again with modifications.

The bowl is approximately 6” diameter and 3” tall.

very cool… looks like your getting this wood turning stuff down . You seem to have the ability to add the touches that make them pop.
