As the golf season wares down, the turning season; for me at least starts :

This is a square bowl from a piece of walnut that was left over from a friends flat project. It was given to me to see what I could with it.

9 3/8” sq. 2 1/8” tall, fairly consistent wall thickness ..about 3/16”

Really pretty Brian, I’ve tried this several times, w/o success. Can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong, I know it’s not rocket science, but there is a trick to it too. Nice grain and finish.

Brian, this is quite a different animal from your usual fantastic toys, and a beautiful thing it is!
