‘Lidded Acorn’ bowl I turned to donate to an auction for the local Humane Society. Woods used are Leopard-wood and Poplar with a ceramic/metal knob.

Cool shape.

FYI, if you’ll post larger pictures, the grainyness of the main one will go away. Currently it is being enlarged to fill a given space. You can click Edit in the top right corner when you get some larger pics. Larger, but not too large.

Very nice turning. I like your choice of woods, it is a great look.

I saw this briefly the other day and came back. It caught my eye right away. Too bad the photos are so small.
