My latest turning – Bowl #6.
A piece of Walnut rescued from a firewood pile back in the spring of 2010. Pre-turned in May to 1” and left to dry all summer & fall, then finished in December. Unfortunately some checking still occured as can be seen in the end-grain photo, but it was my first big bowl and came out pretty nice regardless.
looking down into the inside. I tried to make the profile of the inside conform to that of the ouside while maintaining around 1/4 thickness.
From the view of the end-grain, the checking shows. But at least I saved it from a pile of ahes!
The final picture shows it next to my first bowl and filled with life-size imitation fruit for size comparison.
This latest bowl, in walnut is 9 1/4 inches across at the top, 5 1/2 inches at the base and 5 5/8 inches tall.
