Here is a lovely Walnut bowl I just finished up to bring with me to my demonstration in Seattle next weekend. I used the Robert Sorby Spiraling and Texturing Tool to produce this stunning herringbone pattern around the outside. Finished with General Finishes Salad Bowl Finish. If you are in the Seattle area swing on by Woodcraft next weekend and say hi.

The herringbone pattern adds a very nice look to the bowl.

Love the herringbone pattern. Really good looking work all around…it’s in a class of it’s own!
