Another Claro Walnut Bowl

Here is another Bowl I turned from Claro Walnut. I just love the grain variations and the color difference that runs throughout this wood.

8 inch diam. X 3 3/4 inch tall. Turned to 3/16 wall. 6 coats of Tung Oil/Varnish then buffed with the Bealle Buffing System

One of the largest bowls I have done. I love watching the bowl appear from out of the rough blank. Turning has become my ZEN time. Just spin the wood and watch what happens.

Please leave all comments and critiques. I am always trying to improve and your comments help.

Thanks for looking.

OH MY! Can we say beautiful? Yes, we can. Can’t really say anything else right now.

Thanks for all the great comments everyone. I really enjoyed making this.

It has been getting easier to make things like this with the more I do. Practice, practice, practice. It sure helps.

Thanks again.

Quite the wood, and excellent form for the bowl. 3/16” walls is incredible… I would have blown out the side.
