Here is a quick project I ran off before the great shoe challenge. It is turned from spalted walnut (which got overly spalted and the blank had to be reduced to small bowl size from a 10” x 4.5” round). I sculpted the turning with my wecheer wood carvier with a reciprocationg chisel handpiece. Then cleaned up the curves with rotary disks and rifflers.

The diameter is about 6” and the height is about 3.5”. It is finished in formby’s tongue oil and a couple coats of satin poly. I was pleasantly surprised that this blank had such a great staining…it even had some strange knots in it. The part that I had to cut out was even more colorful….but had gone punk.

Thanks for looking….critiques and suggestions welcome.

WOW – I like the wood. As you said, it has some interesting knots that give it an awesome look. Nice work.

-- I've never seen a tree that I wouldn't like to repurpose into a project. I love the smell of wood in the morning - it smells like victory.

wow, that looks awesome, it doesn’t even look like wood, it looks like it’s painted.
