Three more bowls I’ve done recently. The bowl in the first two pics is 3” x 5” and is an end grain bowl from pecan. I used a beading tool and burn wires to set off the texture made with a spiraling tool on the side of the bowl. I filled a large cavity in the inside of the bowl with some powder I bought at Woodcraft. Can’t remember what it’s called. The second two pics are of a small bowl, 1 3/4” x 5 5/8” made from mesquite with some worm holes in the side. I found the worm when cutting the blank on the bandsaw. I also lost the knot in the top but I think it adds some character to the piece. The last two pics are of a bowl 2 5/8” x 7 1/2” made from russian olive. All bowls finished with Mylands friction polish.

Thanks guys! Joe, I used a Sorby mini spiraling tool. Something I learned from one of the guys in COWA.

Beautiful bowls. Used to call it a knurling tool on the metal lathe.

Wonderful bowls. I have have been turning less than a year I am am learning the Bowl. Sure do enjoy them, at times it hat when they blow up, but least it gives me a excuse to fire up the lathe!! Thanks for posting!!
