Claro Walnut is one of my favorite woods to turn, when I can get it! This salad bowl is 12-3/4” in diameter and 2-3/4” deep, just right for salsa and chips. I oiled it with Walnut oil and buffed it out by hand. I think it turned out nicely.

A beautiful creation!

I love a satiny finish on a turning, high gloss hides the beauty of the wood.

Very pretty, Barb! I also love walnut and I love the low profile of this bowl. Another great piece!

Hey Barb, that looks sweet. Good job.

Claro develops such a nice finish on it. Just creamy.

That is a large bowl – someday…

Great looking bowl. I’m learning to wood turn and that piece is an inspiration. Thanks for posting.
