This was alot of fun. It was an experiment in using Titebond to fill cracks. That part did not work very well but I had to find out for myself. I have been working on form, trying to get a better curve and a better foot. This is Juniper, about 8” across, Danish oil w/ a couple of coats from the handy rattle can. Don’t look too close at the finish.

Jim J. is right: the contrast is very pleasing to the eye. The colors are warm and very compatible with each other (as only nature can match it). I do not know why, but looking at this Juniper bowl, it came to my mind a Native American Horse … an Indian Horse.
You did a great bowl.

Great job on this. I too like the contrast in the Juniper. I just cut down some juniper in my garden and I’ve sliced it up, so it won’t be turned, but it seems to be a good wood to work with.
