A new bowl in warm, wonderful Cherry. 9-1/2” diameter x 2” deep, the inside form of this one slopes gently to the center, while the outside is flared in a wide cove to the rim. Always trying new forms, for me. Tell me what you think!

hi barb: what do I think? I think you should give yourself a present & get some wood 3-4 inches thick. You’ve been doing well with 2” material, but thicker wood would give you more squiggle room for creativity, and design.

I see a nice mixed green salad sitting in a bowl that will get darker red with time. I like the broad base. It would hold a lot of weight well like large grapefruit. Nice job.

Narb: A great looking bowl.

It does seem to flow gently but has a firm foundation.
