This is the only picture I got of this project before it got away. This was a collaborative effort with my wife, Heidi. She had a client that wanted a big bowl decorated with a lizard. I turned as big of a hunk of Hackberry as I could get on my lathe. Finished diameter is slightly over 11”. Heidi did the woodburning and colorization with water based dyes (she’s the artist of the family). Barely visible is some detail on the outside of the bowl , a band with some designs and color on it too. The wood has a pale green hue when finished. Her client was elated!!
I wanted to add that the idea of dyeing the wood came from posts by Paul Miller (Shipwright) and the really wonderful work he did on “A Little Cabinetree”
