Here’s a bowl I made as a birthday gift for my sister. It is made from a chunk of dogwood that had some knotholes and natural cracks and voids. This bowl began life with a standard bowl edge on it, I had finished the sanding on the inside, reverse mounted it and was cleaning up the bottom when I caught a snage with my scraper and sent it flying. after cooling my temper down…(i had quite a few hours in this one) I picked up the pieces of the bowl. my wife suggested I go ahead and finish it, that it was interesting with the non-typical edge. I agree with her now, though I had my doubts when I was finishing it.
anyway, my sis loved it and that’s all that matters. just proves that sometimes even the screw ups can turn out to be beauties! thanks for looking!
