This is a little walnut bowl I made with a thin flared rim.It was from a small piece I was given and I tried to get something unique from it. I had to leave some of the sap wood on it to keep it of any size.
It is finished with EEE and Shellawax.

this is really kool. I really like the design. I also like using some sapwood in some things. I think it gives another touch of character

Guys, thanks for all the nice comments. it was fun to make and it was supposed to be a 3 blade wing bowl but I don’t have the proper tools out here in the desert to make it that way. The width of the flange was a little small to do it too

Dave, after the tour of your shop and showing me how you make and lay up segments, I owe you a segmented bowl on here. I’ll have to do it when I get back to my shop.
