A fellow LJ gave me this blank when I purchased a log of olive from him. Check my previous projects for pictures of the olive goblet I turned. I promised I’d turn this piece next, and this is what came out of it. Not my best work so far, but I am happy with this bowl. It’s a lot deeper than the pictures make it look, can’t figure that one out. Let me know what you think.

Mesquite is beautiful. It has nice grain patterns, the color spectrum is pretty breathtaking, and it’s a nice hard wood. This has a spot right on my desk, over there on the left. :D

You did another nice job with this piece. It does have great color. I almost turned this piece a few times. I knew it would be a nice bowl.

Thanks again, Nick. I love this piece of wood. I can see why you were so tempted. You weren’t kidding when you told me I’d love it.

Thanks! Lathe work is so much fun.

Ed – you really do have to try it. It is the only wood so far that surprised the heck out of me when it was finished – I had no idea that this color spectrum was in there.

Nice bowl. I think a good bowl begs to be held. This looks like one. Mesquite has alot of good qualities.
