Spalted Pin Oak Bowl.
5 1/2 Diam at bottom, 4 1/2 Diam at top, 3 inch tall, 5/16 thick wall.
Finished with 4 coats of Tung Oil/Varnish.
Like normal, the design for this just happened. I trued up the blank and just started cutting. This is what I ended up with. I try and let the wood decide what it wants to become. I like it’s choice this time. haha
Instead of putting a “stepped edge” on the bottom like I usually do, I just kept the radius of the lower edge going up and under the bowl, then rounded out the center section. I like the way this feels on this bowl. Gives the base some more weight to it also.
Have been debating on turning a lid for this but not sure if I will. What do you think?
Please leave all comments and critiques. I am all ways open to help and suggestions. Thank You for looking.
