This is a follow up project to my vine inspired bowl. This one has a two fold story. I wanted to do another legged bowl and I decided that putting the legs in the middle of the bowl would be the most challenging. A friend of mine who makes three legged stools told me he always uses three legs on his projects because it is the easiest way to keep all of the legs on the ground. He said “That’s why they don’t make six legged chairs.” So of course I made a six legged bowl. The sap wood on this had some swirls on it that if followed made me think that the legs would look like they were struggling under the weight of the bowl. Once carved out however, it looked like a big bug to me. I showed a non wood working buddy of mine and he said it scared him because it looked like it was ready to jump at him. I haven’t decided if I like it or not yet. Again, no joints, no glue, just wood. All comments, especially criticisms, are very welcome. Seriously, you won’t hurt my feelings.
