So i have practiced using Red Cedar, but this is my first sucessfull hard wood bowl. I had a chuck of Black Walnut limb with natural holes, bark and such so i tried my best. I donated this to the coompany fundraiser so we will see if any one else like it.

Beautiful piece of walnut ! Good use of branch wood too (it’s way too unstable for most applications . . . ).

This is a beautiful bowl and the red cedar makes a very nice wood for this piece.
