Here is my entry for the contest “FLOW”
I call this my “Infinity Bowl” It has 8 ovals around it that are all touching. Got my inspiration from the infinity symbol, (figure 8 on its side). It represents the FLOW OF TIME. Everything has to answer to time. The tree grew, the logs were cut/milled, I cut and glued them together, then turned the bowl. Every step along the way, TIME was FLOWING past. Now (hopefully) this bowl will last a lifetime. and still time moves on.
Woods used are Walnut and Red Oak. 7 inch Diam X 3 inch Tall. Turned to 1/4 inch wall. 4 coats of Tung Oil/Varnish.
Not real pleased with the way my sections came out. I need to make a better sled for cutting them. (and purchase a belt/disk sander) haha. Hopefully the next one will be better.
Please leave all comments and critiques. I am all ways looking to improve my skills and knowledge.
Thank You for looking.
