This project is 11 1/2” in Dia x 2 1/4” deep. Finished with multiple coats of poly and buffed on the Beal System. I was over to my brother in law place and over the course of the evening we migrated to his shop; he had a large pile of fire wood that he uses to heat his shop. In the pile was this piece of Black Walnut I asked if he was going to burn it. He said I suppose you would like to make something out of it, I just grinned. He said take and see what you can do with it. So this is the rescued piece. I like, feel free to critique and let me know what you think.

With your choice of the shape and the wood you created a prize bowl indeed! Just beautiful!

Nice save! Would have been a shame to burn such a lovely piece of timber.

I love black walnut!!! It’s so hard to believe that somebody could just throw a piece of wood like that into the fire. I’m glad you saved it, ‘cause it looks beautiful now.

-- Cheers and God Bless
