Here is a Pistachio and Spalted Maple Lidded Bowl With an Ebony Finial.
This turning started as a Hollow Form, (see last pic) Had a small catch on the inside while hollowing. As I was cleaning up the top, I blew a hole through it at the thin spot. So I cut the top off and turned it into a bowl with lid.
I call this a ”Mid Process Design Change” Just because things don’t go as planned, does NOT mean to give up and throw it in the firewood pile. Use a little imagination, and try something new. It might not always work, but it is worth the try.
Bowl is Pistachio, turned to 1/8 inch wall.
Lid is Spalted Maple.
Finial is Ebony.
6 inch diam X 2 1/2 inch tall with 2 inch tall finial for 4 1/2 inch tall over all.
Finish is “Old Masters, Tung Oil/Varnish
