Turned from an odd shaped piece of cherry its finished in tung oil & measures 8” across 6” tall. It has some cracks & nicks but I liked the grain. Thanks for looking.

Looks like a giant gravy bowl! I like the way this turned out Lou, it is very eye appealing.

You did a real nice job with that natural edge. I need more practice at that. Beautiful!

This one is a keeper! I like the way it turned out with the high side, reminds me of an old time bathtub!

Thats really nice Lou. I’d love to see how you do these things. Is there a video online showing these kind of turnings? Thanks for sharing.
