Several years ago my wife and I toured Arizona. One of the places we went to was Canyon De Chelly. as you can see in the second picture. If you look at the canyon wall , you’ll notice the verticle stripes. Thses are caused by the smoke rising from the pueblo fires and rain water running down. When I was turnning this bowl, I thought of Canyon De Chelly. Therefore, name of this bowl. I used a large dia. Forstner bit to remove most of the interior then foinished using my lathe gouges. To keep the bark on the bowl, I used approx. 2 bottles of CA glue. The finish was Woodturners Finish.

Very nice turning, nice figured wood. I especially like the natural edge.

Very nice job. I was wondering how big is the bowl? It looks pretty big and beefy. Thanks for showing.
